Our school holiday science workshops are conducted in a similar manner to our Weekly Classes that operate during the school term as a Science Club. This means our workshops provide students and parents the perfect opportunity to experience what our weekly classes are like before committing to our term program.
Each workshop is 60 minutes in duration and consists of educational and engaging science experiments / activities which explores a particular theme from the natural sciences: Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Earth Sciences.
Each class commences with an interactive presentation of the theory behind a particular scientific concept. The theory is then applied through fun, hands-on experiments / activities.
The cost of each workshop session is $25 per child.
The cost of a workshop series pass is $55 per child and consists of all 3 workshop sessions.
Our workshops are held at our venue in Blackburn South, VIC.
