QUT The Cube | Brisbane
20 November, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 31 January, 2021 @ 4:00 pm
QUT The Cube is one of the world’s largest digital interactive learning and display spaces consisting of 48 multi-touch screens and soaring across two storeys in QUT’s Science and Engineering Centre. The Cube delivers unique interactive digital learning experiences which communicate science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) concepts and bring research to the public.
It’s an awesome interactive space for kids. Before you go make sure you head to their website and book into a session. Some of the programs available for bookings include:
Physics Observatory Imagine throwing a wooden block while on the Moon’s gravity and then observing the difference when you throw one on the Sun. As you explore the Physics Observatory you will learn about key historical figures, their experiments, and be able to play through different scenarios to discover key principles of physics. Get zapped by a Tesla coil, change the gravity in the environment, drop weights from a great height and even find out how long light takes to travel across the Solar System.
Code-A-Bot Code-A-Bot is a FREE interactive digital game putting you in charge of programming robot workers to collect and sort rubbish, improving the overall efficiency of a waste recycling plant. Using The Cube’s digital touch screens, robots can be coded to move, sense, and collect or distribute rubbish around the facility and into the correct bins.
The Living Reef A digital marine ecosystem, The Living Reef is a FREE immersive underwater interactive experience of the Great Barrier Reef. The Living Reef features interactive on-screen activities. Turtle Tangle allows visitors to cut away ghost nets to help to free a turtle and Reef Ranger allows visitors to navigate RangerBot – an underwater vehicle developed by QUT’s Professor Matthew Dunbabin.
The Cube is located in the Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point campus, 2 George Street, next to the City Botanic Gardens (a short walk from the city centre).
The Cube is open every day, Monday – Sunday, 10am-4pm. Make sure you book ahead as different activities are on the screen each day and it’s very popular!
