Created by the renowned Scitech in Perth, Australia, this exhibition taking the form of a racetrack complete with pit lane, workshop and physical testing environments, SPEED: Science in Motion is designed to unravel the cutting edge science and technology behind motor sports. Exciting, hands-on exhibits and displays that explore the fascinating science of speed will challenge visitors.
SPEED: Science in Motion will both question and entertain, inform and delight in an enthralling look at all aspects of speed and the science that has lifted auto racing into the highest echelons of modern technology.
SPEED: Science in Motion consists of 17 exciting and interactive exhibits and features support resources for children, parents and teachers alike.
The exhibition is divided into three separate areas containing 17 exciting exhibits with 20 interactive opportunities:
a) The Race Track – In this area trainee drivers can test their skill in a race simulator, change a tire under Formula One conditions or compete against another driver in the Pedal Car Racing.
b) The Fitness Testing Area – Drivers are able to test their skill levels using anticipation, reaction time, peripheral vision and heart rate exhibits to see if they have what it takes to become a professional Formula One driver.
c) The Workshop – This area of the exhibition shows drivers how Formula One cars work focusing on the science behind engines, aerodynamics and motion.

The Imagine Exhibitions crew were not only very competent but fun to work with. I wish that all of our traveling exhibits came with this level of support. All of the visitor comments I have heard have been very positive. The balance of computer-based verses hands-on components works well.
