Toys: Science at Play

Past Event: 19 December 2009 to 18 July 2010

Toys: Science at Play
Toys: Science at Play.

Why does a spinning top stay upright? What makes the patterns in a kaleidoscope?

Why do magnets attract? How do dolls talk? How do building blocks stay up and fall down?

Many of the toys we love work because of physics. You can find out how they work, and the answers to many more questions, in this fun and interactive exhibition.

This popular exhibition returns to Scienceworks and includes robots, dolls, hula hoops, building blocks, toy timelines and kaleidoscopes. This exhibition provides plenty of opportunities for all ages with enquiring minds to tinker with toys.

Developed by Scienceworks and Scitech, Perth.
