ACT

A long time ago we went to Canberra and it was a new state to us. We saw so many cool things like the parliament, the national museum and a science center called Questacon.

At the national museum, there were HUGE QR codes on one of the walls. Inside every single wall had brail that translates to mate. There was a security guard who was telling us a bunch of information about the area we were in. For lunch, we went to the museum café and I had a hamburger that was REALLY fancy. After that, we went to a section about the future where they give you a computer and you have 1 minute to create a house or ship. Then they make a tour of all of them. I made a greenhouse with my face on it.

At Questacon, there was an earthquake simulator room that simulated what the news and bookshelves and stuff would be like. There was also an antigravity swing that simulates what it would be like to be on the moon, a contained lightning strike, a gravity drop where you hold on to a bar and then drop onto a slide. There is a robot that acts out scenes from movies like star wars and the sound of music. We went to a parasite talk where they showed us how big ringworms can grow and what is the most dangerous parasite.

Giant QR codes.
