Discover science that moves you at Orana Mall Dubbo. Explore the scientific principals behind music, light, force and motion at Shop 131 (opposite The Coffee Club) at Orana Mall Dubbo. 

From Saturday 30 June 2018, Orana Mall will play host to a range of fascinating and interactive scientific experiences as part of the Science on the Move travelling exhibition, created by Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra. Science on the Move is a collection of 23 exhibits and 35 hands-on experiences that will engage both the mind and body in all things science. 

“Science on the Move lets visitors discover concepts such as electricity, magnetism and human senses in a fun, interactive way,” said Tracey Redden, Centre Manager of Orana Mall. Visitors can experiment with sound by hitting pipes of varying lengths with a rubber thong to play a tune, or make music using a row of bottles filled with different volumes of water and air, to produce different pitched sounds. Science on the Move explores key themes such as physics and biology; visitors can determine the balance point of different shaped rods and everyday items like a broom, or lift blocks to gauge how heavy the blocks would feel on other planets in the Solar System. With a range of puzzles, visitors can also showcase their problem solving skills as they try to balance six loose sticks in mid-air on top of an upright stick, and working with space to maneuver four identical spaces into three. “We are really excited to host the Science on the Move exhibition and look forward to seeing the community enjoy all of the activities on offer,” said Tracey Redden. 

Suitable ages eight and up, but with topics of varying complexity, Science on the Move will engage all ages about the wonders of science. Exhibition open at Shop 131 (opposite The Coffee Club) Orana Mall from 30 June 2018 to 22 July 2018. For further information please contact Centre Management on 02 6882 7766
