Motion Exhibits

Use your body to breathe life into water and stone in these captivating experiences. Spin the massive boulder with your hands and create a whirlpool by spinning the paddles.

Explore what happens when you combat inertia by putting kinetic energy into a system then watch the effect of friction as it slows down the motion.

Explore Motion

Join James as he demonstrates Newton's laws of motions, with the help of the motion exhibits at Glasgow Science Centre's Outer Space.
