About

Imagination Factory focuses on how technology makes life easier and challenges the idea that technology is only defined as high-tech electronics.

Play with simple machines such as cams, pulleys, levers, gears, pistons (or pneumatics), wheels and electricity.

Learn how robbers break into a safe by cracking a cam lock, perform a musical tune using pulleys, race some horses using gears, play 'rock, paper, scissors' using electrical circuits or find your way through a maze using pneumatic pistons.
