Questacon - the National Science and Technology Centre, is the perfect place to start your holiday with kids in Canberra. With our spectacular science shows and hundreds of hands-on exhibits, nothing is off limits when you walk through the doors and Kids are encouraged to touch, feel and interact with the world around them and engage in fun and interactive science!
Start your visit to Canberra by exploring the world inside your head and discover that reality isnít what it seems. Perception Deception is the latest hands-on exhibition that lets you explore the world, change size before your eyes or be unable to speak because of your voice. Can you trust your brain to be truthful?
Seven themed galleries are bound to keep the kids busy! Why not discover the prehistoric world of dinosaurs, including the toothy Tyrannosaurus, amazing Apatosaurus and spiny Stegosaurus or explore SideShow and the science and technology used in fun parks. SideShow takes an entertaining stroll through the age-old science of theme park psychology and physics. Enter a world where you can freefall two meters without getting hurt, throw a ball that seems to curve and experience a simulated roller coaster thatís almost identical to the real thing.
Questacon has something for every member of the family, including Mini Q: fun for 0-6 year olds. A fun, stimulating environment for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to explore, splash, perform, build, climb, blast off or even role play in areas especially designed for little people. Or just sit back and watch the crashes, explosions and fun with Questaconís unique brand of science theatre. The Questacon Excited Particles make science seriously fun and educational in daily spectacular science shows and talks, sure to captivate children and parents alike!
So why not discover science that leaves you smiling this summer at Questacon!
