Scienceworks' provides an insight into everyday science through a number of engaging and interactive exhibitions focusing on topics that are both of interest and relevance to our visitors.

During 2009/2010 we attracted a record visitation level of 538,183 visitors.

For the summer holiday program we will be celebrating IYC through hands on chemistry experiments in Experiment Zone. Children will be able to learn about chemicals found around their home and discover the difference between an acid and base.
