Discovery World

Hands-on science


Discovery World is a hands-on, play-oriented educational space.

It's science disguised as fun. Or fun disguised as science? You decide!

Witness weird optical effects in the Light Zone, challenge a friend to a battle of brains with MindBall, learn about friction during a game of air hockey and much more.

Chat with one of our roaming Science Communicators to learn about everyday science, or come to The Greatest Science Show in the History of the World, Ever to see some incredible (and sometimes explosive) experiments.
