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 arenโ€™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.
