Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre is excited to bring the Questacon Science Circus to Northern Tasmania. The Science Circus is travelling down from the North Island over February and March, to deliver science shows to local schools and bring our Pop-Up Science Centre, bursting with free and spectacular science experiences for the whole community!

The Science Circus Pop-Up Science Centre will be filled with over 30 hands-on science exhibits and unforgettable science shows running regularly throughout the day. You can freeze your shadow, test your reflexes, see how fast you can really throw and even explore angular momentum by spinning yourself silly. It’s a great opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to share, discover and engage with science together.
