Pattern Pod is an amazing multi-sensory area for children under 8 years old. Fun, interactive exhibits encourage them to recognise and copy patterns – or create entirely new ones of their own.

In Pattern Pod, children can explore water ripples without getting their feet wet, create symmetrical images on touch screens, follow robot trails and much more.

Like scientists, children explore the world by trying to make predictions about events happening around them. It’s often easier to make these predictions if these events repeat themselves or if there is a pattern to them.

There’s something for grown-ups too. Touch screens give fascinating insights into the science behind the exhibits and the ways in which children play and learn.

Visit Pattern Pod on the ground floor of the Museum – it’s a fun and stimulating place where children can learn through play to develop their science skills.
