Science Time: Light

Two children make shadows with shadow puppets

Jump in to Questacon’s Science Time, a hands-on experience for little scientists aged 3 to 5 years old and their caregivers. Children will ask questions, explore and experiment just like real scientists.

Discover the science of light and shadow. Have you ever wondered why some objects cast a shadow and others don’t? How and why shadows change? Or why some objects reflect light? Come find out at Science Time: Light!
