Learn About

They will explore what will stick to magnets and what won't; investigate the concepts of attract and repel; move a toy car with only magnets; enjoy a balloon stuck to their head and much more!

Questacon's Science Time is a fun and interactive learning experience for little scientists aged 3-6 years and their carers. Just like real scientists, children explore their world and ask lots of questions. In Science Time children will investigate the exciting world around us by participating in activities and experimenting, in a friendly and inclusive environment.
