We have built over 100 different science museum exhibits, mostly for the Cambridge Science Centre. These have included electrical generators, ball runs, stick insect cages, logic blocks and dissected household items.

We think that 95% of the time a small exhibit can teach and fascinate your visitors just as much as a large exhibit. Plus they have the advantage of being much cheaper, and you can get 2-3 times as many in the same space, allowing your visitors to explore more science, and making it more likely they will find something that inspires them.

The boom-whacker or pipes of pan exhibit is an old favorite. Tune a series of pipes to different notes and the musical visitor hits the tubes to play a tune. We have added a tune guide to make it easier to use.
Interrupt a laser beam and you can produce clicks, pull a piece of mesh or patterned fabric across it, and you can make notes, play tunes, or even produce speech.
Visualise the sound wave you are creating as you talk or sink. Do different sounds produce different waves?
