The Final Frontier: Discovering the Earth

Space exploration has helped us learn a lot about the planets in our solar system, especially our own. What can we learn about meteorites hitting the Earth? How can we use infrared light to help us study the universe, and what do you look like through an infrared camera? Find out what a real dinosaur fossil feels like, as well as ways we can use space travel and technology to find out more about our little corner of space.

Sweet Science

This workshop is all about the fascinating and delicious science of confectionery. You will be able to act like Willy Wonka and create your own sweets while learning about the scientific reactions that make honeycomb, the chemistry of sherbet and how to make express ice cream. You will also find out why we all love sugar so much!

Important: This workshop does involve making edible products. Ingredients include dairy products and sugar. Please let us know at the registration point if you have any dietary issues.

Pocket Sized Science

This is an explosive experience which includes a fantastic mini-show and the added benefit of hands-on workshops that take everyone who attends on an inspiring journey. We will be showing you how we all have the ability to shape the future of our world and could be the next big scientist, inventor or engineer! Join us! We will look at energy changes and transfers, motion and forces, chemical reactions, combustion, transfer of electrons, friction and much, much more!

Let’s Rock!

Rocks, made of various naturally occurring minerals, form the Earth’s outermost solid layer on which we all live. Studying the properties of the rocks and their formation history helps us to understand our planet. During this workshop, we will carry out interactive demonstrations and experiments on petrology, sedimentology and plate tectonics so participants can study fossils and natural resources formation in the Earth’s crust. Children will gain hands-on experience in being "little geologists" through these activities with their families and understand the physical nature of Mother Earth.
