Questacon's travelling exhibition Fascinating Science explores everyday scientific principles and problem solving puzzles.

Discover interactive experiences to learn about logic, balance, fluids, illusions and mathematical puzzles, exploring three zones in the exhibition.

The Puzzlequest Zone involves logic and spatial puzzles. The Eyes On and Perception Zone explores visual illusions and human perception. The Forces Zone discovers forces such as magnetism, friction, gravity and spinning.

Be challenged to unlink loops, play music on milk bottles, build a pyramid puzzle, make a pencil appear then disappear or get rhythm on the brain!
