Rebekah Collins and SparkLab

Rebekah Collins is the manager of SparkLab at the Queensland Museum. SparkLab is a hands-on interactive science centre that invites visitors to explore, experiment, and learn through self-guided experiences. In this interview we talk about how Rebekah and her team went about designing SparkLab from scratch, and how they decided what kind of experiences they wanted visitors to have. We also talk about the challenges of running a hands-on science centre in a post-pandemic world where cleanliness and sanitisation is a constant concern.
