Forces: drop-in activity


Inspired by the must-see STAR WARS™ Identities: The Exhibition, join us at the Powerhouse Museum to explore the forces in our world. Which force is your favourite? How do they work?

From air resistance force to muscular force to gravitational force, complete a series of challenges using physics, technology and your ingenuity!

Create and prototype a flying creation and test it out in big wind tubes. Move magnets to draw and make your own designs at magnetic tables. Explore tension as you squeeze through our tension walls.

Our littlest visitors can explore push and pull forces as they experiment with cause and effect in a dedicated Under 5s zone.

Plus drop-in to our drawing stations underneath the planes and satellites in the Transport gallery, and be inspired to design a future piece of technology.
