Event details

There are no right or wrong answers, no instructions, no rule book. Just follow your instincts as you experiment with a range of exhibits, including spinning turntables, sound-based games and a ‘Bernoulli Blower’ that floats a beachball in mid-air – always popular with younger children!

 

Ask yourself the kind of questions that a scientist would: “what happens if?”,  “what can I see here?” and “why is that happening?”.

All of the exhibits in Curiosity Zone can be used in a variety of different ways, so you choose what you want to explore. When you come back next time, will you re-test your ideas or explore something completely new?

The exhibits can also be used by multiple people at the same time – a great way for families to play and learn together.

Assisted by grants from the Northern Rock Foundation and the Garfield Weston Foundation.
