It’s all about the magic of Science!

16th – 18th April: School Holiday Family Fun!

Come along and enjoy three hours of non-stop Science fun! Explore the universe in our Starlab (a 30 minute session), learn something new in one of our workshops (they are all 45 minutes in duration) and see an awesome Science Magic show (which runs for an hour) that is guaranteed to stimulate your love of science!

When you arrive you’ll be given timed tickets to the Starlab and also to ONE of the following workshops. At the conclusion of the session, you’ll see our Science Magic Show! There will also be some hands-on activities for you to do and we’ll be joined by Switched On Kids with their STEM Pop Up Shop.


States of Matter: explore the world of solids, liquids, gases and even plasma! Learn about the change of states when heating and cooling. Suitable for ages 8+

Geology: Rocks and Minerals – what’s in the earth? What’s all around us? Make your own model of the earth and learn about the many layers of the earth. Suitable for ages 4+

CSI Forensics: Learn all about fingerprinting analysis, soil sampling and follow the clues to solve the crime. Great for ages 8+ or those who have a real interest in forensics!

Science Toys: With everyday objects, make some toys that demonstrate how much fun science really is, and how it can be found in the world around us. You get to keep the toys you make! Suitable for all ages.

It’s only $15 + booking fee per child, from the ages of 4 – 15, with accompanying adults FREE of charge. That’s right, if you’re an adult, you do not need to purchase a ticket. Just one for your child.

There’s plenty of parking available around the Adelaide Showground, but if you’d like to get a little closer to the hall, you can park in the carpark at the back of the building. Entry will be via Leader Street and there will be signs directing you all the way in.

Plan to arrive early so you can collect your timed session tickets! Doors will open half an hour before the start time.

We are also a Children’s Univeristy Learning Destination, so don’t forget to bring your passports for three hours of learning stamp!


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

You can catch public transport – bus or train, which will bring you to the Adelaide Showground. If you enter via Goodwood Road, you will need to walk all the way to the end of the Atrium, which is where the Stirling Angas Hall is.
