Our Science Centre welcome begins at the Kinetic Garden, where you can discover the inter-relationship among forms of energy and more through interactive exhibits such as the Magic Swing, a Sundial and a Lithophone.
The Kinetic Garden is a unique outdoor exhibition which demonstrates certain scientific principles and phenomena that would be difficult to create in an indoor setting.
Speak into the Echo Tube and listen to the echoes! An echo is the reflected sound returning to its point of origin. Heighten the fun by speaking continuously into the Tube, which creates multiple echoes and takes time to subside.
Places everyone! Position your camera at the photo spot onsite (on the yellow sticker) and be tickled by the interesting illusion of how large or small your photo subjects look seated on the two chairs! It perfectly demonstrates how our visual system relies on shortcuts and sometimes glosses over details in favour of the big picture!
