The AstraZeneca Human Edge
New exhibition opens December 7.
We're developing amazing new experiences that explore the bounds of what's humanly possible.
Plunge into the mind of a free-diver to explore the respiratory system, tackle a climbing wall to see if your brain could take you to the summit, and test your own personal limits as you run, row and dance your way through The AstraZeneca Human Edge. Discover stories of athletes, survivalists, extreme sports enthusiasts and others who have broken through barriers of what was once thought humanly possible.
The AstraZeneca Human Edge is a new 900 square-metre exhibition where visitors of all ages will explore limits that athletes, adventure-seekers and survivors discover through rigorous training, determination or risk-taking. What are the boundaries and thresholds of the human machine? How far can we push our own limits? The AstraZeneca Human Edge will reveal new and exciting science through "bodies-on" activities and new perspectives on our unique artifacts.

Weston Family Innovation Centre
Weston Family Innovation Centre continues to evolve with the recent addition of many new, inquiry-based, hands-on exhibits.
Explore aerodynamics by testing human-sized wings and airplane designs, create moving sculptures and interact with heartbeats. Unleash your musical creativity as you engage with sound panels, the ferrofluid piano and test the materials orchestra. Meet some of history’s great innovators and discover how rigorous testing and even failure can lead to ideas and discoveries. Take risks. Make mistakes. Create something.
