CSIRO Discovery

 A massive day of Science today. Questacon this morning and CSIRO Discovery this afternoon.

This is a small showcase of some of the things that the people at CSIRO get up to. It also includes a few hands on, interactive work stations.

If I had to pick between the two I would certainly choose Questacon, but at only $20 for the whole family CSIRO Discovery still offered a couple of pretty cool experiences.

Visitors have the opportunity to watch a 10 minute 3D video which details more about some of what the CSIRO are currently working

Inside what they call, The Lab, were several small activities, like this simple Acids and Bases experiment.

These sorts of things normally freak Little Surfer Dude out but he enjoyed this activity today.


This oversized heart chair was certainly pretty cool!

Here Fairy Princess is extracting DNA from Pea Juice.


The Biodiversity display, working with backyards and the wider environment.

Lego Lover was thrilled to complete this accurately. He is controlling a robotic drilling piece via the controls and the image on the screen.

On the other side (where he cannot see) is the robot he his maneuvering, simulating how this could possibly be used in the mining industry.
