With loads of interactive exhibits to explore, you will not know what to try first at the Discovery Science and Technology Centre in Bendigo.
Check out your reflection in the whacky mirrors. See how a pair of thongs can be used to play a tune on the Thong-A-Phone. Listen as your own voice echoes back at you through a tube that is almost as long as Discovery itself. Shoot ping pong balls amazing distances only using the air that surrounds them. Or spell out a message using the Air Cannon. That’s just to name a few of the experiences you find here! Discovery is also famous for the Southern hemisphere's tallest vertical slide. With a drop of seven metres, you will fall at a speed of 30 to 40 kilometres per hour. Let's just say Mamma was a little scared!
There is also a playspace for the youngest of scientist - Kaleidoscope is for children aged 6 and under. When you enter through the giant rainbow you will learn everything about the fun world of science.

Mamma's special mention: Planning your next Birthday party is a piece of cake at Discovery, all you need to do is invite the guests! This place has you covered!
From July 1st until July 16th the Discovery Centre will be having a "Future Freak Out!" Children will get to explore the big questions - What does the future hold for technology and the way humans live? What did we used to think the future would hold? Plus see how imagination fuels invention and see what we've gotten right (and wrong) about the future, in the past!
