What is the Discovery Centre?

The Discovery Centre is full of fun and educational games for kids to learn about science, health and medical research.

  • Explore the human body using an ultrasound, X-ray or MRI and discover what researchers are doing to find out more about body organs.
  • Get up close with our special microscopes, take a look inside the mouth, ear and skin and find out why our researchers are interested in snot, poo and dust mites.
  • Take a tour of the places we do research – in the lab, clinic and community.
  • See if you can defeat the cancer cells using immunotherapy or catch the allergens in the airway.

The Discovery Centre provides a unique experience for children aged 7 and up, and you never know – the parents might learn something too!
