Wallace and Gromit's World of Invention at Scienceworks

Wallace and Gromit's World of Invention at Scienceworks

Wallace and Gromit are the brainchild of Nick Park, and are the main characters in short clay animation films such as A Grand Day Out, A Close Shave, The Wrong Trousers, The Curse of the Were-rabbit and A Matter of Loaf and Death.

Most recently, Wallace and Gromit have played host to "A World of Invention" TV series, that takes a light-hearted look at real-life contraptions, gadgets and inventions and aims to inspire a whole new generation of innovative minds by showing them real, but mind-boggling, machines and inventions from around the world that have influenced Wallace's 'illustrious' inventing career.

Victoria has been a centre of creativity and innovation from the nineteenth century through to the modern day. The new Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention exhibit at Scienceworks (19th May - 11th Nov, 2012) features some of the great inventions from Museum Victoria's collections as well as original Wallace and Gromit sets and some great hands-on activities.

The exhibition also looks at how people can protect their ideas using intellectual property. With the support of IP Australia the exhibit explores patents, registered designs, trademarks, plant breeders' rights and copyright.
