SciWorld Spectacular Science show

Years R – 8
60 minute show

This is the one stop show which celebrates everything Science! You’ll learn about Chemistry, Energy, Forces and so much more! You’ll see explosions, rockets and some amazing experiments you can try at home! It’s a winner and one of our most popular shows which acts as a great precursor to many of our workshops!


Science Explorers workshop

Pre-school, 60 minutes.

What is a scientist and what do they do? What does a scientist look like and where do they work?

Through a range of hands on fun and by watching science experiments, children will learn about solids, liquids, gases and air pressure, just to name a few.

New!  Five Senses workshop

Pre-school – Year 2
60 minutes.
30 students.

How do we know where we are or what’s going on around us?  We use our senses!  This workshop introduces young minds to our five senses, what they are and how we use them, and interactively investigates four of them, in fun ways, designed to stimulate and provoke interest and excitement.  Note, taste is explained, but not actively investigated for hygiene and safety reasons.

Maths Quest Workshop

Pre-school – Year 2
60 minutes.
30 students.

Help Jacinta to find her treasure by listening to the story and using Maths to help her on her way. As a perfect introduction to Maths, children of all ages will love this interactive, hands on workshop where they’ll use a variety of maths puzzles to solve problems and help fictional characters on their quest!

See! Hear! Light and Sound Workshop

Reception – Year 3
60 minutes.
30 students

How do you see? How do you hear? Find out about lenses, reflections and vibrations in this popular workshop. Students will be enthralled with the practical demonstrations and various workstations which will help them to explore the phenomenon which many of us take for granted – sight and sound!

It Really Is Rocket Science Workshop

Years 3 – 7
90 minutes
30 students

Designed by our resident rocket engineer, this workshop will teach you not only how to make and launch your own low pressure and high pressure rockets, but you’ll also learn about the dynamics behind rockets, forces – balanced and unbalanced, Newton’s Laws of Motion, air pressure and predictions. Who can make their rocket fly the farthest? Find out in this workshop!

Simple Machines Push Pull!

Reception – Year 3
60 minutes
30 students

An introduction to Forces, this hands-on workshop teaches children through simple experiments and workstations all about machines, levers, magnets and pulleys in every day practical applications. It will introduce the concepts of FORCES and WORK and hence show how machines enable us to do work much more easily. It will introduce the 6 simple machines, which are the 6 basic building blocks of all other machines. Comprehensive teacher notes are also included when booking this workshop.

Seeing Stars in our StarDome / Starlab Session.


Reception – Year 9
45 minutes duration.
30 students


Reception – Year 10

45 minutes duration

60 students

Come inside our mobile planetarium and discover the universe around you. The Stardome is the portable, inflatable planetarium that comes to you!

Topics covered can include day and night, seasons, stars, planets, solar system, gravity, phases of the moon and constellations. If you have any specific areas you would like covered, just ask and we can do our best to accommodate!

Advanced Stardome sessions are available.

The following direct science curriculum topics are covered:

Predictable phenomena on Earth, including seasons and eclipses, are caused by the relative positions of the sun, Earth and moon.

The Earth is part of a system of planets orbiting around the sun.

Earth’s rotation on its axis causes regular changes, including night and day.

Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance.

Daily and seasonal changes in our environment, including the weather, affect everyday life.

The constellations are discussed and the stories behind a number of prominent constellations are used to bring the sky to life and provide a memorable experience for the students. Stories from other cultures are included to show the importance of culture in interpreting the night sky.

Please note, the StarDome requires an indoor space of 7 m x 7m with an unobstructed ceiling height of 3.2m and one power point. The Starlab is 11m in diameter and requires an unobstructed ceiling height of 4.5m with access to one power point.
