FUNdamental Science

25 Mar @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Our most popular workshop is exactly that… a lot of FUN! We explore matter and materials by combining a range of components with amazing results. Make and take home a tub of instant snow Make your own monster or fairy slime Make your own multi coloured bouncy ball Create swirling artworks in a bowl of milk See our pop rockets soar 2 storeys high Liquid nitrogen demonstrations

Forces BIG and small

25 Mar @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This one is for the more adventurous and involve some explosive stuff! Ranging from magnetism and gravity to pressure… we create some movement Make your own magnet set to take home Configure our marble run for speed or stunts Erupting volcanos and foam fountains Liquid Nitrogen demonstrations and explosion xplosion

Slime Workshop

26 Mar @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Need I say more…? It’s Slime Time! Learn how to Cross link polymer chains in PVA and then it’s up to you. Stretchy or flubbery Add some colour Make it sparkle with glitter Fluff it up Freeze it with liquid Nitrogen

Engineering challenge

26 Mar @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

If you want to go higher, further or stronger then take up our challenge! Use our Stick Kit to design and build structures to investigate stress, strain, load and force. Design, build and take home your own tower Build and test a bridge See how high a tower can reach

E-Waste Disassembly

27 Mar @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

What is inside the box? We will tool you up to open it up! Learn about design, recycling and basic electronics Carefully take apart suitable E-waste Salvage and wire up components to discover basic electronic hacking Get creative with a glue gun and make a robot Sort materials into recyclable groups

Technology Innovation

27 Mar @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Fascinated by gears, pulleys and levers…? Let’s put them in action!
