Learn how to combine art and science in one of our favourite exhibits, the 'Harmonograph'.

Ever wondered about the science behind some of our exhibits?

Join us on a journey as we blur the lines between art and science. In this episode, Ryan will explain how Scitech’s Harmonograph works and answer the question “why aren’t the lines drawn evenly when we swing the table?”

Watch the video below to learn about physics and motion, then have a go at designing and building your own Harmonograph at home.
