Events & exhibitions

The Sciencentre offers hours of interactive, science-based fun for kids of all ages (including the 'big kids'!).

There are no 'visitors' at the Sciencentre - everyone is a 'participant'. This place is a 100% hands-on experience!

Body Zone


Your body - like you've never seen it before. Challenge it, move it, re-assemble it, confuse it. Collect your vital statistics. For a total hands-on, minds-on, body-on experience - jump in!
