Questacon's Fascinating Science!

Fascinating Science is a collection of 32 bright and colourful hands‑on exhibits and aims to make science fun and relevant for everyone by engaging people in making their own stimulating discoveries.

Fascinating Science focuses on human senses such as psychology, perception, physiology and balance, explored in a fun, interactive way, helping visitors to enjoy learning about science.

Visitors can also experiment with mirrors to unlock secret messages, move pegs on a board to create a variety of patterns, and create a three-dimensional cross using a key and lock puzzle.

Targeted primarily at children aged 8 to 14, but with topics of logic, balance, fluids, illusions and mathematical puzzles of varying complexity, Fascinating Science will engage all ages about the wonders of science.
