- Shopping Centres
Our Scitech team can add some flare to your shopping centre with our science shows and interactive exhibits. Open across trade hours, our fun and engaging program will keep the whole family entertained.
Scitech offers a number of one-hour hands on workshops suitable for libraries.
Junior Robotics and Coding
This engaging workshop inspires children in robotics and will build their foundation skills in coding such as creating basic algorithms and debugging. Children will work together to complete a set of challenges from unplugged coding activities to manipulating Blue-Bot robots through a maze.
Develop science literacy skills and encourage life-long learning by encouraging students to get excited about books and science. After reading a classic Dr Seuss story, students participate in a hands-on science activity related to the book in a one hour workshop.
The Lorax â€“ "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." Dr Seuss. After a reading of this classic Dr Seuss story, children will learn about plants and the environment and create a biodegradable pot to take home.
Horton Hatches the Egg "I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful 100 percent!" Dr Seuss. After a reading of this classic Dr Seuss story, children will engineer and build a nest to keep a falling egg from cracking.
Fizzy Things â€“ Scientific concepts are explored as participants design and engineer their own take-home contraptions. What happens when you mix an acid with a base? Find out the answer as we make lava lamps and rocket fuel.
EdisonTM Robotics â€“ Explore the fascinating world of robotics and computer programming using EdisonTM robots. Students will learn how sensors work and how to program a robot.
- Out of Hours School Care
Scitech can come to your organisation with our fascinating, informative and inspiring programs. We have a number of options to suit out of school care and holiday camps.
Science shows are 30-minute presentations that combine a lively mix of explanations, interaction and demonstrations to showcase the scientific process and the relevance of science. Follow-on workshops are designed to reinforce the messages in the shows via student-driven hands on challenges and experiments.
Playing with toys leads to all sorts of amazing science experiments. Question, predict and test as we learn about motion using the best scientific equipment of all: from the toy box!
Mix & Make
Chemistry happens in many different places â€“ letâ€™s journey together and have a go mixing things together and making something new! From the kitchen to the bathroom, students explore what happens when we combine different things, both following a recipe and making up some of their own.
A group of animals threw a party at your school last night! Can we figure out who was there by the clues they left behind? Together we will need to be scientific detectives and solve the mystery.
Day and Night (Spacedome)
Journey through our day time sky as it makes the exciting change into night. What is different? Why do we have day and night? What features can we observe and learn about together?
Physics can be described as a set of rules that explain what is happening around us. But should we just believe everything we read? Together, we test and experiment with some of these rules and find out that there is often more to consider than what we first think
Element of Surprise
We love learning so much that we have built tools that allow us to extend our senses and discover even more. See the world around you in a whole new light! Together, weâ€™ll use some of the different tools to explore chemistry and reveal unseen properties.
Ninjas need to have excellent hunting and hiding skills. Together letâ€™s observe, try out and learn from a variety of amazing living things using these skills to survive in their environment â€“ just like ninjas!
Our Solar System (Spacedome)
Explore the universe as astronomers have throughout history and discover the specialties of our solar system and its nearest neighbours.
Cost Plus hands-on workshop Science/Spacedome Shows 60+ students $4.50 per student $7.00 per student Less than 60 students $270 flat rate $75 for each workshop
- Playgroups and Childcare Centres
Scitech can come to your playgroup or childcare centre with this unique program that encourages adults and young children to play, explore and discover together. Children from birth to kindergarten will be shown how to use their senses to understand the world around them and discover how they are being scientist every day. This program fosters young childrenâ€™s natural curiosity and encourages them to ask why, how and what if? Supported by the latest neuroscience research into early brain development, the Scitech Early Childhood program provides a safe, exciting and interactive environment for children to engage in self-initiated play.
