If you haven’t been to Scienceworks since you were in school, now is the time to go – it’s fun for young and old and the exhibition celebrates inventiveness and innovation.
Interspersed with the very cool Wallace and Gromit displays is really interesting information about many Australian inventions such as plastic money, the Victa lawn mower and Melbourne’s very own ByK kids bike.
A child’s bike is not simply an adult bike made small. Adult bicycles are made with speed and comfort in mind, while for a child ease and stability are more important. So Warren Key redesigned his kids bike with a lower frame (lower centre of gravity), larger wheels and lighter components (easier to push).
It’s great to see Australian inventiveness celebrated as part of a world-class touring exhibition!
