The Eureka! Museum in Halifax has recently received its three- millionth visitor, a tribute to the way in which its 400 interactive exhibits have tapped into children's interest in people and things.

They can organise a distributionroute for food lorries or solve a logical conundrum about favourite biscuits, explore how barcodes store information or how climate affects the production of crops. Answers are supplied.
