We've got an action-filled day at Imaginarium. Here are just some of the things you can do and see.

FITNESS: HOW DO YOU COMPARE?
How high can you jump? How fast can you run? Compare your results to athlete records.

GIANT BUBBLES
Can you fit inside a bubble? Why not come and find out.

NEUROSCIENCE
What goes on inside your head?

CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF
Enter our paper plane challenge! Prizes for best effort, distance and design.

SUN GAZING
Can you spot a sunspot using a solar filtered telescope?

FROM PASTA TO PASTURE
Build your own giant giraffe out of spaghetti. Yes, it's an unusual engineering challenge - some say a tall order - but you can copy our bamboo example.

WHAT ARE YOUR PROSPECTS?
Unearth hidden fossils in our giant sandpit to claim a prize. Then examine your geological discoveries under the microscope.

GET HANDS ON WITH PLAYFUL TECHNOLOGIES
We’re changing the world for the better and you can too.

THE USC π'D PIPER
Take on the challenge! How many numbers of Pi (π) can you remember?

CRASH!
Watch how paramedics respond in a real-life crash situation.

HARRY POTTER IS ON TRIAL!
Witness a live mock trial. If you're lucky, you might be picked for the jury. Real lawyers will play the role of counsel, and law students will fill other roles.

NAVIGATE THE A-MAZE-ING FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD
Collect tokens to exchange for a prize.

SPECTATORS, BE WARNED...
watching the Quidditch display will leave you spellbound!

JOIN THE BEAT
Experience the rhythm of an Pasifika drumming circle.

LARPING
It's like a live comic book - your favourite characters come to life in Live Action Role Play.

CLIMB THE WALLS
Try your hand at rock climbing on the free standing climbing walls.

What's on - from 10am to 2pm

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT
Tease your taste buds with a banquet of mouthwatering multicultural cuisine. Whatever your favourite flavour, you're sure to find something delicious! Choose from Dutch poffetjes, Italian pizza, Greek souvlaki, Spanish paella, Asian street food, Bavarian schnitzels, or an assortment of fine coffee and drinks.

ADVENTURE ZONE
Charge your energy and your imagination and spend the day exploring our Adventure Zone. Try your hand at building a spaghetti giraffe, search the giant sandpit for fossils, navigate the a-MAZE-ing four corners of the world, or brave the rock climbing wall. Plus, enter the paper plane challenge, witness a mock trial, or dance along to the beat of the Pacific. There's plenty to see and do.

GLOBAL VILLAGE
At USC, we're all about “UNI-fication”. Explore the sights and sounds of other cultures in our Global Village. After all, it's one planet, one race, and one future.
