Learn About

Music and Sound explores how sound is created, what makes sounds louder and how different instruments work. Children will be able to investigate sound with shakers, bells, maracas and guitars.

Questacon's Science Time is a fun and interactive learning experience for little scientists aged 3-6 years and their carers. Just like real scientists, children explore their world and ask lots of questions. In Science Time children will investigate the exciting world around us by participating in activities and experimenting, in a friendly and inclusive environment.
