They say a picture is worth a thousand words so have a glimpse in to the magical world of Techniquest.....
Working out the jigsaw puzzles.
Playing the drums.
Playing the giant piano.
In fits of laughter through playing the giant piano.
"The ball that is supposed to float through the rush of air floated away, but hey look at my hair."
For the youngest son he just had fun playing with everything, but my oldest son seemed to enjoy participating in the exhibits and reading the accompanying information to understand the scientific processes which were occurring. This was great for us parents as we had the feel-good factor of knowing we were able to contribute something worthwhile to not only his understanding of scientific processes but also provide lots of lovely childhood memories. It's the kind of place you will look back on and say "remember that time we went to Techniquest and used the shadow room." I know this is correct as I have often talked to my children about when I went to Techniquest as a child.
The areas are split into areas such as water, light and music and so this makes it particularly useful if your child is studying a certain area in school. With a planetarium and science theatre there is something for everyone.
Master Craftiness says: It was exciting because the exhibits were so much fun and the science facts made it really interesting!
There's some great events on and upcoming at Techniquest:
