Little Science - experiment, play and discover

Who is going to like it

What age is best to start learning about science? Here at iQPARK we are shifting this boundary ever lower. Every day our belief is confirmed that even the tiniest children have an enormous desire to explore and discover in an entirely natural way and for them and their parents this is the right place to unravel the mysteries of science.

What you will find here

Take a walk beneath the heat-sensing camera that radiates your body. For the brave there is a fakir’s bed made up of hundreds of nails. Play an interactive game down on the floor using projection and find out how many years it will take for the last wheel in our time machine to make one rotation. 

 

For teachers

This exhibition presents phenomena and laws to children without them knowing it. While examining the color of shadows made by their own bodies they will learn which colors light is composed of and what happens when you mix them together. They will lie down on a bed made up of over two thousand sharp nails and find out that the tricks of fakirs are not magic but simple laws of nature. They will “see” heat on the thermal camera and how some animals, such as snakes, see the world around them.

An auditorium and laboratory form part of the fourth floor, where educational programs are held for our littlest researchers. You can find their current program in our section for teachers..

Skills and abilities - get to know yourself, what you can do, what you can handle

Who is going to like it

All those who want to test the speed of their reactions, running and reflexes, their grip, memory and other variables that aren’t measured at home... Check your orientation and balancing abilities in a sinking ship, call for help using Morse code, swing your friend on a see-saw without touching them. The very smallest ones can bury themselves in the pile of Lego bricks and build whatever takes their fancy.


What you will find here

Try walking on a 20% incline in our model of the Titanic. Practice sending an SOS signal using Morse code might come in handy. And those who would prefer to escape the ship altogether should head for our track, where they can measure how fast they can run ...

For teachers

How high can children jump, how fast can they run, how pliable are they, how hard can they press, how strong are their arms? Do they have a sense of balance and can they keep themselves and their friends in the air on a see-saw for as long as possible? They will test all this and much more on our interactive exhibits, designed specially for this purpose. In the exhibition they will also find a giant chair, solar-powered train and the largest man ever to walk the Earth, they will try various wooden puzzles, make amazing pictures with a sand pendulum, and attempt to build the highest tower in the whole world from wooden blocks.

The World Around Us - become a firefighter, rock star or a builder

Who is going to like it

Do you know what you want to be one day? Here you can try out your dream profession. Become a teacher, doctor, shop assistant, barman, television announcer, musician or build a whole house or wrap yourself in a giant bubble in the world of bubbles.

What you will find here

Choice of career is a serious matter, which is why everything here is real, albeit sometimes on a slightly smaller scale. A musical stage, building site, school classroom, fire station and television studio. Everything is waiting for you to try.

For teachers

From the youngest age, children learn by imitation and copy the behavior and activities of adults in their games. They want to be a fireman, actress or teacher. At iQPARK we decided to give their games a genuine form. We have prepared a real musical stage, where they can become a famous band for a while, try real musical instruments and put on a great concert for their friends. Right beside it in the television studio they can broadcast the local news, and if it does not go well they can hide in a giant bubble in our “bubble-arium,” where brave fire fighters can join them, shortening their journey by sliding down the fire pole.  The adult world is a big attraction for children, so why not let them first try out their dream job before they really decide

Water World, Illusions and Puzzles - develop your skills, mind and patience

Who is going to like it

This exhibition is for everybody who likes water. That is for everyone, regardless of age. And when your arms and body have suffered enough from pumping, you can torment your brain with various puzzles and illusions.

What you will find here

Try building a dam, releasing water into a water mill, or pumping water to the 5th floor of the building. Put together puzzles and brain teasers, get taken in by optical and other illusions, go through a labyrinth of mirrors and spinning cylinder or talk about various points of interest and curiosities from history and the present. And if you like, you can have your head served up on a plate, without it being cut off beforehand. 

For teachers

How come water flows from a tap at home? How does a toilet work, and what does it look like when we flush it? Can a jet of water lift a marble ball weighing 120 kg? And how is water filtered and cleaned? Why is it dangerous to bathe beneath a weir, and how is energy from water transformed into electricity? To all these questions children will come to the answers themselves thanks to the interactive exhibits in our water world. That is not all to be found on the first floor of iQPARK. Children will find their way to the cosmic cylinder, an amazing illusion of a rotating footbridge. And if that is not enough, we have prepared a large range of puzzles, games and brain teasers.
