From human ability to engineered equipment and fundamental forces, there is a lot of science to explore in the sporting arena! Let’s break things, bounce things and beat the competition to uncover what makes a sporting hero.
Show Times: Noon and 2pm daily
Capturing the Cosmos
How do we see the Cosmos’ feats of strength? What is the Universe capable of? How do we measure its greatness? Come delve into the stretches of space in this beautiful film for all ages narrated by Geoffrey Rush. Uncover the magnificent power that would surely award the Universe a gold medal.
Show Times: 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30pm daily
Test your skills and abilities with Discovery’s athletic exhibits. Can you lift your own weight (with the help of some engineering), balance along a beam, or touch your toes? And how is your Olympic walk? Explore human mechanics as you check your score at each exhibit. Ask for a check point sheet at the front desk on entry.
Live interaction with Scientists aboard the E/V Nautilus
Link up with an exploration vessel out in the Pacific Ocean for an exclusive Q&A session for Discovery members. Through telepresence, beam on board the E/V Nautilus with Discovery's Rachel Rayner and, if we're lucky, a fellow scientist. They'll answer all your questions and show off footage of their robots and deep-sea discoveries. There will also be time to explore the exhibits, and have a snack on the house.
This is a member's only event, but entry is limited, so reserve your spot now via email or through our online booking system (see below for booking steps - it will make sense when you see it).
