Water Tank

Why do some objects float and others sink?

A sophisticated real-time digital water simulation, Water Tank is water play without getting wet! Fill and drain the water, add objects like a stone, a rubber duck or a ball to the tank to learn about buoyancy, and watch as ripples and waves demonstrate how the surface of the water reacts to your touch.

The activity is part of the QUT Summer Holiday Program.
