Physics Workshops & Incursions for Primary Schools

The universe is full of movement, energy and life. These workshops explore the nature of forces and motion, matter and energy. Understand how forces such as friction, magnetism, gravity and electrostatic forces effect an object’s direction, speed and acceleration. Learn about different types of energy including motion, heat, light, sound, and electricity, and how it can be transformed from one form to another.
