Pattern Pod is an amazing multi-sensory area for children under nine years old—and their parents and carers—where they can learn through play to develop their science skills.
Like scientists, children explore the world by trying to make predictions about events happening around them. It’s often easier to make these predictions if these events repeat themselves or if there is a pattern to them.
In Pattern Pod, children can explore water ripples without getting their feet wet, create symmetrical images on touch screens, follow robot trails and much more. Fun, interactive exhibits encourage them to recognise and copy patterns—or create entirely new ones of their own.
Visit Pattern Pod on the ground floor of the museum for non-stop fun!
