the water area.

 

 Ride the amazing propeller-driven merry-go-round

we call the Vancouver Flyer, and investigate

parachute design.

Whap out a tune on the whapophone, test your skills

as an orchestra conductor, peer down an “infinite”

 hole, and see yourself in infrared.

 

In Contraption Corner, find out how components

like  gears, electric circuits, levers and wheels come

together to make gizmos and contraptions we use

everyday.

 

 Then stretch your knowledge and imagination by

 creating your own invention.

 

 Watch our visitors experiment with dams, locks,

fountains and boats in the new water area.

Our World

Our World is an exciting exhibition that takes an

 innovative, interactive and fun approach to the

 complex issue of sustainability and how the everyday

 choices we make affect our world.

 

Through colourful, bright and imaginative exhibitry

 Our World engages your attention while focusing on

the everyday choices that you make and how they

impact our world both immediately and in the

 future.

Issues such as transportation, electricity, water

 consumption, garbage/waste disposal, and food

production are explored taking you from awareness

 to action within the context of sustainable living.

 

Learn the everyday things that you can do to

minimize

your social, economic and ecological ‘footprint’,

while teaching your children about responsible

 living.

Visual Illusions

First , We Mess with your Mind! When you bring

your brain over to play, you can find out how it

works with optical illusions and topological

puzzles on the first level.

 

 Seeing is not always believing… and believing is not

always seeing!

 

 In this mind-numbing showcase of eye-popping

 optical effects, straight lines look curved, black

 and white images look coloured, still pictures move

and your friends will shrink before your eye

 (just use one for it to work!).

Ropes, metal rings and wooden blocks are just some

of our instruments of torture.

 

 Test your wits against our variety of puzzles for all

levels of skill and patience.

 science and nature films on one of the world’s

largest dome screens.
