Make a shelf float in space with science and engineering with State Library in our ongoing series of Zoom workshops .

Use cardboard, string and a bit of patience to learn how tension and compression create tensegrity. Build one for your desk! Amaze your friends with your ability to apparently defy gravity! Discover how magic turns into science in action.

Fun Fact: Did you know Brisbane has the biggest tensegrity bridge in the world and it leads straight to State Library?
