New exhibition Mighty Small Mighty Bright opens at MOTAT
Lasers, rainbows and magnetic nanoparticles are just some of the extraordinary science that is at your fingertips in the Mighty Small Mighty Bright exhibition now on at MOTAT. Children and families will have fun exploring cutting edge science in this inspiring new family exhibition.
Kids can find out how do you bend light? How small is nano? How are advanced materials being used in our everyday lives? This thought-provoking exhibition aims to inspire kids to engage with STEM subjects and have fun along the way.
MOTAT partnered with New Zealand’s leading scientific research institutes the MacDiarmid Institute and the Dodd Walls Centre, as well as Otago Museum to develop this science exhibition that demystifies the fascinating world of photonics, advanced materials and nanotechnology.
“Mighty Small Mighty Bright brings science to your community, your families, and makes it fun and hands on. We hope all visitors will leave having learnt a little and having been inspired a lot. Science is for everyone. Enjoy it!” explains Professor David Hutchinson, Director of the Dodd-Walls Centre.
MOTAT believes…”the achievements of our science community should be shared, celebrated and demystified. We want the next generation of young science superstars, who visit us at MOTAT every day, to see that they too can change the world with their discoveries, from right here in New Zealand.”
Mighty Small Mighty Bright is open to the public at MOTAT’s M1 Great North Rd location until September 2019. The exhibition is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years old. Find out more here: https://www.motat.org.nz/exhibitions/mighty-small-mighty-bright/
