Early Learning & Kindergarten Science Incursions

Fun and interactive, we offer quality early learning science visits to inspire and excite!

Mad About Science kindergarten workshops are aligned with the current Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework, and are based on a developmental approach suited to pre-school children aged 3-5 years. Lead by qualified and experienced facilitators, our early learning science enrichment programs are currently on offer in Victoria, NSW, Queensland and ACT.

Introductory Early Learning Science Workshop

  • Level: Suitable for ages 3-5.

  • Duration: 90 minutes

  • Numbers: Each workshop can cater to a maximum of 30 children. However, smaller groups have better access to equipment and the facilitator.

  • State: VIC, NSW, ACT & QLD

This is our most popular early learning workshop, and acts as a great general introduction to the diverse areas of science. Presented in a 90-minute format, this immersive workshop is recommended as your first Mad About Science visit. It includes whole class demonstrations as well as free exploration time.

Based on a developmental approach suited to pre-school children, six workstations are set-up to engage children in a variety of open-ended science activities.

Each table is set up with a different science theme, including magnetism, electricity, chemistry, forces, light and colour, and mini beasts. Children use the materials and activities at their own pace, supported by the presenter and your staff. Parent helpers are encouraged, ideally one adult per workstation during a session.

Pricing for this option is:
  • $380 plus GST for a single 90 minute early learning workshop
  • $340 plus GST for two or more consecutive 90 minute early learning workshops

Lisa from Mad About Science is absolutely brilliant (so is the whole team really!). She was amazing with the kids, great with our kids with additional needs and just ran the experiments in a wonderfully fun and interactive way. I couldn’t recommend Mad About Science highly enough.
