A brand-new interactive area has landed at Life. Get hands-on with exciting exhibits in the new WOW Zone!

Explore how to bend beams of light, see yourself in an infrared camera, discover what sound looks like, operate the 6 metre tall ‘Big Machine’ and much more.

Get stuck into brain teasing exhibits, explore how amazing science is used in everyday life, and be wowed by dramatic demonstrations that YOU control! Wow Zone aims to be a fun and memorable experience for children and adults.

Highlights include:

  • Push and pull levers, twist and turn handles, and use conveyor belts to move plastic grain capsules to the top of the Big Machine and watch them fall through the chutes.
  • Watch lightning bolts strike a mini replica of Newcastle’s famous Grey’s Monument. See what happens to the lightning bolts when you touch the glass tube.
  • Work with a friend to build an arched bridge. Are you brave enough to test it with your body weight?
  • Test your strength and lift yourself up to see the science centre from a different viewpoint on our pulley chairs.
  • Create a live heat map of your body with the infrared camera. What happens to the colours if you touch something cold?
  • Turn a handle to generate enough hydrogen and oxygen to blast a ping-pong ball the height of a two-storey building.
