Activities this year will include:


If a dancing, painting robot wasn’t enough, it’s also a plush snake! You pick the music, and Picasnake will paint you a masterpiece.

Physics Circus
Scream in fear as you test out the bed of nails, then scream some more for instant nitrogen ice-cream at this Physics Circus with all new stunts.

Quirky Keyboards
Jam out with a keyboard made of fruit, or play the piano with your feet as your run up and down a flight of stairs!

Paper and Flowers
Take to the greenhouse to learn how to make paper (with flowers) and grow flowers (in paper).

Science Rendezvous
Touch Pond
It’s more slippery and wiggly than any petting zoo you’ve experienced – tickle a starfish, meet some microbes, and discover a whole wet world of organisms!

Science Rendezvous

Microbes and Molecules
Take home a twisty balloon sculpture of everyone’s favourite biomolecules and micro-organisms – from an iconic double-helix to a bacteriophage!

Science Rendezvous

Science Photobooth
Throw on a lab coat, mix some potions, and show us your Nobel Prize-winning smile!

Chemistry Magic Show
These explosive displays will make you wonder whether the labcoat-clad performers might actually be magicians… but chemistry reveals their secrets.

Oobleck Run
A liquid that pushes back – run across a sheet of Oobleck (but don’t get stuck!) in this experience in non-Newtonian fluids.

 Science Rendezvous
With a bit of chemistry, use the sun and shade to create a lasting image and capture a piece of daylight.
