ENERGEX Playasaurus Place  - opened in 2009

The energy we use today, was being formed long before dinosaurs ruled the earth; more than 300 million years ago. Designed as a place to learn and play, ENERGEX Playasaurus Place features our much loved life-sized dinosaurs and a colourful exploration of the story of energy.

This exhibition focuses students on a positive and sustainable future, while investigating ancient animals and plants, energy generation and consumption, climate change, and what we can each do to make a difference.

Imagination Factory: Invent and Play  – until 12 Dec 2010

With more than 30 interactive exhibits and information stations, Imagination Factory is designed to feed the imagination of students and have the gears of their mind spinning with new ways to think about the mechanical world. Hands-on exhibits let students experiment with gears, levers, pulleys, pneumatics, wheels and circuits – and discover how simple machines are used to create ingenious inventions.

  • Power a cartoon face with different kinds of power sources.
  • Learn how an engine works.
  • Solve the challenge with Pneumatic pistons.
  • Find the right combination of gears to build the fastest toy animal.
