Choose from the following topics:

CANDY CHEMISTRY

Discover the surprising science hiding in a bag of Skittles. Explore solubility, buoyancy, reactivity and investigate the odds of finding your favourite colour. How sweet it is!

DISCOVERY ZONE!

Join us for an action-packed adventure through the discovery zone, where you’ll explore colour chromatography, investigate why trees are important to engineers. and create an elastic-powered car. Every great scientist started out as a curious kid!

DO IT LIKE DA VINCI!

Da Vinci was an accomplished artist and skilled architect, and you can be, too. Paint to explore solubility, absorption, and surface tension. Become an inventor by taking our structure building challenge, and create a catapult. Discover the joy of combining science and art!

MAGICAL SCIENCE

Discover a magical force that will levitate particles. Scatter light and create illusions that will thrill your audience. Experiment with colourful teas and unusual potions on this magical science adventure!

OBEY NEWTON: IT’S THE LAW!

Sir Isaac Newton was one smart dude! Explore Newton’s Laws of Motion as you investigate how things either move or stay put, and how every action produces a reaction. Race a waterdrop to the finish line and discover the effects of gravity on your very own tumble bunny!

SCIENCE SNIPPETS

Enjoy a few snippets of science! Be a chemist and discover the difference between baking soda and powder. Create a fantastical creature while investigating dominant and recessive genes. Make a pompom launcher and explore physics. Discover aeronautics by building and testing a plane. A snippet is just the beginning!

SHOOT, SCORE, SCIENCE AND MORE!

Jump, shoot, roll and glide; can you find the science in sport? Take a test to discover where your dominance lies. Create a sculpture to investigate how throwing a ball affects your balance. Discover physics by engineering a better hockey puck and building a mini golf course. Join us as we shoot, score and explore the science of sport.

STICKY SCIENCE

Get sticky with it! Discover the science of sticky. Make your own glue from food products and test them to see how they hold. Create your own sticky art. And of course, there will be silly putty!

“The Scientist engaged our students in a wonderful workshop. It was easy to follow and fun! Students had a chance to use their senses and critical thinking skills, make observations, wonderings and learn about chemistry! I would recommend a Online Family Science Night to other schools!”
