Sciencentre Resources

Schools and Children’s Groups

With 20 interactive exhibits, Sciencentre is where you can follow your curiosity and bring out your inner scientist as you question, investigate and wonder about your everyday world. As you play and investigate in Sciencentre, you are using lots of the same skills that scientists, engineers and mathematicians use in their everyday.

Explore your curiosity as you play with the exhibits.
Ask questions, test out your ideas and make observations of what is happening. 
Share your thinking with others and build on new ideas and questions. 
Apply these STEM skills in Sciencentre and later in your everyday world.

Sciencentre is ideal for schools and children's groups (ie. vacation care) with children aged 5 – 13 years, however students of all ages will benefit from their visit. 

 

Visit Planning and Booking your visit for booking details, free adult ratios, group sizes, planning information and making a booking.
