H2O—Soak Up the Science is Questacon's new permanent exhibition about water, with 16 interactive exhibits about how water behaves, how it shapes our world and how we use this precious resource.
Get hands on and boil water, launch a hydrogen rocket, pump water towards the ceiling, reveal how much water is used to manufacture food and clothing or design a water-efficient city.
Water may seem to be a common chemical, but it has some rather uncommon properties. Even at the atomic level, water can influence how life and landscapes form, such as how water moves through a plant and how rivers meander around bends.
Australia has plentiful sea water and wastewater, yet we rely on freshwater for survival. How easily can seawater and waste water be converted into freshwater?
