Imaginations are being sparked and curious minds enthralled at Cobb+Co Museum’s brand new Sciencentre which has opened in time for school holiday fun.
The Sciencentre is a new permanent discovery zone allowing visitors of all ages to be curious about their world, ask questions and test ideas in this fun and experience rich environment.
Queensland Museum Network CEO Dr Jim Thompson said Cobb+Co Museum looks forward to welcoming visitors to the Sciencentre where everyone can see scientific principles in action.
“Science is all about observing, describing, finding creative ways of solving everyday problems, and studying the world around us,” Dr Thompson said.
“The gallery is designed to help visitors understand the science that shapes our everyday lives and hopes to inspire the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
“The timing of the opening is perfect for families and young people who are looking for something extra special to do these school holidays and we look forward to welcoming everyone to this new space.”
The Sciencentre includes 15 interactive exhibits in which people of all ages can discover how different forms of energy play a role in our everyday lives and includes a flight testing zone, gravity wall, floating ball and a giant Newton’s Cradle.
The new Sciencentre has been designed using concepts from the popular SparkLab Sciencentre at Queensland Museum in Brisbane that welcomes hundreds of visitors of all ages daily.
Admission is included with entry.
