Take a closer look at what you might find in your backyard.

Go on a journey inside a magnified backyard lawn and find out how it feels to be smaller than a blade of grass. Use special lenses to take a look at the backyard through the eyes of a dog or jump on board the flying bee for a bees' eye view of the garden.

Delve into the mechanics of the swing, slide and see-saw before exploring the 'frog eat insect' world of the interactive pond.

There are wonders aplenty hidden in your own backyard; come along to discover the science behind it all.

Amazing Backyard Adventures - an exhibition to inspire wonder and fascination about the science that is literally in your backyard!
