If you have an interest in science and technology, along with an inquiring mind then this interactive exhibition is for you! Innovation Factory's 18 interactive exhibits include Amazing Air which requires users to combine hydraulics and pneumatics to move a ball through a maze. Then there's Rock, Paper, Switches: the electronic version of Rock, Paper, Scissors - players press switches to complete an electric circuit to illuminate a rock, paper or scissors icon.
