Experience illuminating light, lasers and lenses in this exhibition for the whole family to enjoy.

Through 22 exhibits, Playing with Light gives you the chance to explore and learn about the fundamental ways that light helps us in our everyday lives.

Make yourself shorter, taller, thinner or wider with our flexible mirrors, mix together coloured lights, freeze and interact with your shadows, find out how you can 'shake your own hand', make light bounce down a stream of water, paint with light using special virtual paint brushes, plus challenge your friends in our maze of lasers!

Experience light like never before in this interactive exhibition perfect for the whole family.

Playing with Light is a temporary exhibition, designed and developed by Scitech, Perth.

Is Playing with Light open half and hour after opening times? It says at the top it's from 10am-5pm.
