Backyard Adventures

Travelling exhibition

A hidden world

From the biological interactions between plants and insects, and the zoology of nocturnal animals, to the horticultural know how that goes into growing giant vegetables, the mathematical genius needed to lay pavers and the feats of construction that
can go on in the shed, the backyard is full of science.

Scitech has created a travelling back garden, complete with a decaying house, giant mechanical skipping rope and garden golf that will engage visitors with science and technology and enable them to continue discovering after they leave the exhibition.
