Science or Magic? If I Can Understand It, It's Science - If I Can't, It's Magic

This hands-on exhibition features over forty exhibits positioned throughout five spaces. The first part, “Mirrors,” analyses the properties of mirror-reflected light. “Seeing” illustrates the connection between the eye and the brain. “Hearing and Touching” explores how these two senses work, while “Moving” discusses the physical principles involved in motion. Lastly, in “Construction,” the science of building is presented. As is typical of hands-on exhibitions, Science or Magic? aims to promote understanding of the scientific principles that regulate everyday life through visitors’ active participation.
