Project Description

Introductory Science Workshop

Not sure what science topic to offer your Foundation/Prep/Kinder students?  Mad About Science now offers an Introductory Science Workshop just for schools!

This workshop acts as a great general introduction to the diverse areas of science. Presented in a 90-minute format or a 60-minute format, this immersive workshop is recommended as your first Mad About Science visit. It includes whole class demonstrations as well as rotations of exploration tables.

Based on a developmental approach, 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. Teachers are encouraged to assist, ideally one adult per workstation during a session.

Lead by qualified and experienced facilitators, this science enrichment workshop is now available in Victoria, NSW, and Queensland.

  • Level: Foundation/Prep/Kinder

  • Duration: Available in a 60 or 90 minute format

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

A wonderful and engaging presentation. It was a perfect balance of sitting down theory and up and around practical components! The kids left with so much new learnings!
