Experience The Cube

The Cube is one of the world's largest interactive digital display systems. It's two storeys high, has 170m2 of high-definition screens, and includes 48 touch panels.

The space offers new and exciting learning opportunities for school groups, as we can use the responsive display screens to simulate environments, display data and interact with virtual objects.

Cube experiences

These 30-minute interactive experiences are available for all year levels.

To book a Cube experience, contact STEM for schools.

Code-A-Bot

Code-A-Bot is an interactive digital game putting you in charge of programming robot workers to collect and sort rubbish, improving the overall efficiency of a waste recycling plant. Using The Cube's digital touch screens, robots can be coded to move, sense, and collect or distribute rubbish around the facility and into the correct bins. You can also work together with other players and their robots to improve efficiencies and achieve the best results to turn DERP (Department of Environmental Resource Processing) into a recycling plant for the future.

Physics Observatory

The Physics Observatory is a virtual feast allowing observers to experience some consequences of the laws of physics as they would be felt on other planets in our solar system. Students can run tests on falling objects and a pendulum under different gravity conditions, investigate an Orrery, and interact with sparks from Tesla's coils. The travel time for light photon from the sun to each planet is dramatically represented, as is Einstein's gravity well.

Dino Zoo

Our Dino Zoo is a scientifically accurate portrayal of 10 dinosaurs across 3 different continents during the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods. Students can excavate a virtual fossil, explore theories about dinosaur extinction, see the changes affecting the earth over the last 650 million years, and learn about the 10 dinosaurs that live at the virtual Dino Zoo.

ChemWorld

ChemWorld displays information about 118 elements and around 50 associated compounds. Fun experiments introduce students to the thermodynamics of fuels used in rockets and the chemical reactions responsible for the colours of fireworks.

Virtual Reef

Our virtual reef provides an immersive, simulated underwater experience that invites students to engage and learn about the Great Barrier Reef's unique ecosystem.

Science and Engineering Centre tour

Explore our new 5-star Green Building, one of the highest-rated 'green' buildings in Brisbane's CBD and home to The Cube and our Institute for Future Environments (IFE).

You can book a Science and Engineering Centre tour by contacting STEM for schools, or download a self-guided school tour of the Science and Engineering Centre.
