Discovering worlds zone


Interactive games and experiments will take you on a journey of discovery, from the microscopic to the astronomical.


From light to dark, microscopic to gigantic, our worlds and others further afield continue to surprise and excite us all.

Step into the SAF building Discovering Worlds Zone to witness a model of an active volcano, to play laser chess and to say hello to a giant mosquito.

You’ll think and learn about exploring our solar system using radar technology - and why not break some magnets to learn more about physics?

The Discovering Worlds Researchers will be there on hand to answer your questions and even help you build a Lego ethoscope as you discover the amazing world of flies.
