What's On

From family STEAM learning to interactive exhibitions. There's something for everyone.

Get ready to move, play and experiment. There's plenty to experience at the exhibition, take a look at what you can get up to:

How hard can you kick?

Stand at the starting point and kick the ball toward the speed radar as hard as you dare. The display board will show you the speed of the ball in kilometres per hour.

How accurately can you kick?

Kick the ball from the starting spot to the lighted sector in the goal. Try to hit the sector before it shifts!

Sailing by Shouts

Start the game by turning the crank clockwise. To steer the boat, shout into the horn and expand or reduce the sail with the crank. Every now and then you need to pump the water gathered into the boat.

Team Stomp

Step onto the board and stomp on it. Wait for the starting shot. The more enthusiastically you stomp your feet, the faster the runner will advance in the competition. The more people there are stomping together on the board, the better the result.

Goalie or Not?

Start the game by stepping on the START text shown on the screen. Stop the balls by moving yourself in their way. The game gets more difficult as you go on!

Circus Game

Join hands with the other players to form as large and round a circle as possible. Working together, try to stop the falling fruits and animals. The clowns on the screen show the movements of your circle. The larger the area of the circle formed by the players, the easier it will be to catch the falling animals and fruit.

Pulse Adventure

Put your fingers on the round discs and steer the red blood cell through the blood vessels using your own heart rate to move it up and down. You can raise your heart rate by moving and lower it by calming down.

Tightrope Walking

Take off your shoes and try walking along the tightrope, from one end to the other!

Disco Donut

Roll the wheelchair to the centre of the dance floor. Always move to the lighted area of the dance floor. Keep up the speed and have fun!

Skip the Rope!

Start the skipping rope and try the classic outdoor game. How long can you jump without errors?

Hit the Ball

Place one of the balls over the airflow. Hit the ball with your hand. Try to make the ball fly through as many hoops as possible.

Nostalgic Tennis

Stand on the floor near the edge of the playing area. Hit the ball by moving yourself sideways.

Precision Throw

Throw a bean bag into the illuminated holes to put out all the lights.

Hula Hoop

Put the hula hoop around your wait and try to keep it up by moving your body. There are three different hoops: easy, regular and difficult.

You're on Thermal Camera

Examine what you look like on a thermal imaging camera. Different colours correspond to different temperatures. How can you change the temperature of your skin?

Group Scales

Get on the scales and see which animal your total weight corresponds to!


Your Dimensions

Stand against the wall and move the handles on the scale. Compare the measurements and dimensions of your body with those of a friend.


Football on the Bench

Place the ball in the centre circle. By sitting on the seat you create a jet of air. Steer the ball with repeated air gets towards the opponent's goal. Defend your own goal!
