Fascinating Science

Questacon's travelling exhibition Fascinating Science covers everyday scientific principles and problem solving puzzles. The exhibition is mainly targeted at visitors aged 8 to 14 years, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Fascinating Science's 26 exhibits offer 32 interactive experiences that will entertain and engage visitors on topics of logic, balance, fluids, illusions and mathematical puzzles. Unlink some loops, play music on milk bottles, build a pyramid puzzle, make a pencil appear then disappear or get rhythm on the brain!

This portable, self-installing exhibition is suitable for regional venues and community festivals or events. View a description of each exhibit or visit the hire page for technical specifications and venue requirements.
