Questacon is Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre. It contributes to science engagement in Canberra, across Australia and internationally.
In Canberra, Questacon galleries and programs provide the local community, tourists and school groups with hands-on science experiences. The opening of Questacon’s latest venture in Canberra, the Ian Potter Foundation Technology Learning Centre, expands opportunities to explore the role of innovation.
Across Australia, Questacon runs programs to reach people in cities, regions and remote communities. Touring exhibitions take hands-on experiences far beyond Canberra.
Questacon also works in collaboration with state and territory governments, universities, research institutions and many others to engage more and more Australians in science.
Questacon is located within the “parliamentary triangle” which contains most of the important national institutions. Its street address is King Edward Terrace, Parkes (Canberra, ACT).
Questacon is a MUST on your Canberra itinerary and delivers the joy and magic of science and technology for children and adults alike.
