Byte Wise

Exhibit with cylinders containing weighted strings

Questacon's travelling exhibition Byte Wise engages visitors with challenges drawn from mathematics and computer science.  The exhibits are targeted towards students from 10-15 years-old, but can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.

Byte Wise contains 21 exhibits that offer a range of experiences to challenge and intrigue visitors, from logic puzzles and code breaking to geometry and even mini-golf!  Play noughts-and-crosses against nothing but cards, challenge a non-electric computer to a game, and discover how images are represented on digital displays.

These ultra-portable, lightweight exhibits set up in minutes, and are suitable for shopping centres, festivals and community events of all types.
