Eureka!

Launch a parachute, capture your shadow and move yourself with a giant propeller as you experiment with water, light, sound and motion among the colourful and lively exhibits in Eureka! Hands-on discovery encourages visitors to try new things and ask "What would happen if...?" Home to our spectacular water table, ball launchers and walk on piano, Eureka! is the place that brings out the curious scientist in all of us.
 

Light and Sound

Bang different pitches on the whapaphone, play a harp with invisible strings, see the reflection of your hand reach out of a mirror and discover how hot you are on the infrared camera as you explore the amazing world of light and sound.
 

Fluids

Create an invisible ring of air, witness a tornado forming, and build dams and fountains as you discover the amazing properties of air, water, and other fluids.
 

Levers, Pulleys, Pendulums and Gears

Lift a hippo, spin some gears, and even lift your entire body off the ground as you learn the amazing properties of levers, pulleys, and other simple machines.
 

Green Features

Our new Eureka! gallery has many new features to make it more sustainable including: in-floor heating, window coatings that help filter out UV rays, solar cells, and smart glass technology that you can change from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch.

Do you know how to make cold? In this video, we'll create an endothermic reaction (a reaction that absorbs energy rather than releasing it) on our infrared camera. Watch the materials combine as we demonstrate the "coldfront" effect. 

Are you curious about other wild things you can do with and infrared camera? Take a look at #SelfieScience: Fun With Infrared Cameras Part 1 and stay tuned to #SelfieScience for more installments. Better yet, come down to  Eureka! and do some of your own infrared experiements.
