Beyond Perception at Scienceworks

Scienceworks' newest exhibition designed for teens but enjoyed by all ages.

Before we came to Melbourne my work was primarily with teenagers rather than toddlers, so when I heard of the Scienceworks' newest exhibition created by scientists, acoustic engineers and young people I was keen to smuggle in my small ones to check it out, and I can confirm it is totally amazing!

Beyond perception


As I said to my friend, this stuff totally blows my mind and I'm an adult, so who knows what these pre- schoolers make of all the bouncing black holes, colourful projections and dry ice.

From my experience I can confirm little kids approve of this brilliant new exhibition with all its knobs to press, screens to touch and levers to control. If you're keen to teach them cause and effect this is not a bad place to start!

Obviously young children won't grasp all the complexities of turbulence, gravitational waves and invisible light, but as I often remind myself more is caught than taught so the fact that you are there with your children, learning alongside them is going to inspire, shape and lead their future into more good learning experiences.

Black holes


I've written before about the goodness of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) experiences for kiddies before, in my article about the gallery space specifically created for pre-schoolers at Scienceworks; Ground Up. Beyond Perception really does take you to another dimension, building on the principles explored in Ground Up and elsewhere at Scienceworks. With plenty of spaces to sit and take in the spectacular, there's lots to learn and wonder at.

Our favourites included the white polystyrene balls.

This permanent exhibit is all about seeing the unseen, encountering the forces that surround us and pushing boundaries - something both toddlers and teenagers are tasked with as they develop their own identity and find their place in the world. And it's not only about reflecting on how far we've come in science, it's also about asking the question - what's next? Which I always think is a great question to ask ourselves. So go check it out and see what you think, whatever age your young ones are.

Beyond Perception: Seeing the Unseen is now open at Scienceworks.

Where: Scienceworks, 2 Booker St, Spotswood
When: Open 10am - 4pm daily
