With 40 interactive exhibits and immersive program experiences, SparkLab is where you can follow your curiosity and bring out your inner scientist as you question, investigate and wonder about your everyday world. Think creatively as you design in the Maker Space, get up close to experiments in the Science Bar and experience the wonder of our changing world with Science on a Sphere.

As you play and investigate in SparkLab, you are using lots of the same skills that scientists, engineers and mathematicians use in their everyday.

Explore your curiosity as you play with the exhibits.
Ask questions, test out your ideas and make observations of what is happening.
Design, build and make creations using your imagination.
Share your thinking with others and build on new ideas and questions.
Apply these STEM skills in SparkLab and later in your everyday world.
