The Cube is the heart of QUT’s new $230 million Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point campus. Part science lab, part digital engagement, the Cube will be the hub of scientific exploration for high school students, the QUT community and the wider public.
Soaring across two storeys of the centre, the Cube is designed to support interactive displays of research projects using advanced digital technology, including 14 high-definition projectors, over 40 multi-touch screens and sound technology.
Collaborating with QUT researchers and drawing on knowledge and data from research areas in Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM), the Cube will facilitate opportunities for the public to discover, visualise and contribute to research projects in the works. Environments will be replicated at a real-world scale, allowing the public, as ‘citizen scientists’, to experience real project scenarios and explore big questions of the 21st century.
