“What is glass?”, “Why do boomerangs return when you throw them?” or “What is gravitational force?” The answers to these questions and many more are to be found at the interactive science exhibition “Kaleidoscope – Scientific Toy” organised by the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information in cooperation with the Civic Association Vedecká hračka (Scientific toy).
Science is a powerful way of investigating and understanding the world around us and the exhibition is a chance to actively engage with this world, as it provides an opportunity for all children and other visitors to get acquainted with the mysteries of science and technology through more than 100 scientific toys, games or simple and challenging brain teasers from more than twenty different countries.
The toys and various physical experiments should help children and pupils understand the laws of physics and other phenomena in a playful and easy way, aimed at building their creative thinking and logic skills. The exhibition is intended chiefly for children, but adults can also get a buzz from finding the answers to brain teaser puzzles.
