EXPLORE the scientific principals behind mu-
sic, light, force and motion at the Nobbies Centre.
From Saturday, April 1, the Antarctic Journey
at the Nobbies will play host to a range of fascinat-
ing and interactive scientific experiences as part
of the Science on the Move travelling exhibition,
created by Questacon – The National Science and
Technology Centre in Canberra.
Science on the Move is a collection of 23 exhib-
its and 35 hands-on experiences that will engage
both the mind and body in all things science.
“Science on the Move lets visitors discover con-
cepts such as electricity, magnetism and human
senses in a fun, interactive way,” Nature Parks
Education coordinator Kim Dunstan said.
Visitors can experiment with sound by hitting
pipes of varying lengths with a rubber thong to
play a tune, or make music using a row of bottles
filled with different volumes of water and air, to
produce different pitched sounds.
Science on the Move explores key themes such
as physics and biology; visitors can determine the
balance point of different shaped rods and every-
day items like a broom, or lift blocks to gauge
how heavy the blocks would feel on other planets
in the Solar System.
With a range of puzzles, visitors can also show-
case their problem solving skills as they try to
balance six loose sticks in mid-air on top of an
upright stick, and working with space to manoeu-
vre four identical spaces into three.
“We are really excited to host the Science on
the Move exhibition and look forward to seeing
the community enjoy all of the activities on offer,”
Suitable for ages eight and up, but with topics
of varying complexity, Science on the Move will
engage all ages about the wonders of science.
Science on the Move will be open between
10am and 4pm from Saturday, April 1 to Sun-
day, April 16.
