Swinging pendulums, turning cogs and spinning discs… come and play with the drawing machines!

Make a frenzy of marks with a multitude of wind-up mice and chickens. Swing the pendulum table and magic spirals will appear. Experiment with a giant Spirograph to create large geometric designs. Be memorised by the mysterious harmonograph, every drawing it makes is one of a kind.

The Drawing Machine exhibition is designed specially for school aged children, with interactive exhibits that demonstrate different forms of mechanical movement and energy. Facilitators will introduce each of the activities and how the machines work, then students will experiment and  come back together to share their discoveries.

These school sessions encourage students to discuss concepts associated with drawing and basic mechanical movement.

With curriculum links to maths, science and visual art, this is unique opportunity designed for students in Prep to year 6. See the school programs guide for further details.
