Level 1, SparkLab, Queensland Museum

Summary

As Queensland Museum’s premier STEM exhibition, students use their inquiry skills as they get hands-on with exhibits. As they play, students ask questions, test out their ideas, observe what happens and share their thinking. They can explore forces, block and mix light, build circuits and more. At the Maker Space, students design and build a solution to a real-world challenge. Students are encouraged to test out and make improvements on their design. At the Science Bar students direct the investigation and on Science on a Sphere students explore anything from extreme weather events to the surface of Mars.

This exhibition and associated programming addresses key curriculum for Science and Technology – Design and Technologies for Prep to Year 8. Download the relevant year level curriculum links.
