The Cube is one of the world's largest digital interactive learning and display spaces dedicated to providing an inspiring, explorative and participatory experience of QUT's Science and Engineering research.
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.
