Fun Vacation Care/OSHC Activities

School might be finished for now
But that doesn't mean the science fun has to end!

Packed with demonstrations and activities carefully selected to maximise the ‘fun’ factor, these programs show children that science can be messy, explosive, delicious, and above all, lots of fun!

Our Vacation Care Science programs are available on a range of exciting themes.

All programs include demonstrations by the presenter and hands-on activities for all participants.

Each program runs for 60 minutes and is available to book throughout all school holiday periods for state, Catholic and independent schools, as well as for after-school care programs during the school terms. 

We can cater for a maximum of 30 children per session, and hold multiple sessions through the day for larger groups.

Program Themes

Edible Science *Most Popular!*

We dive into the kitchen to see what science lies within the foods we love to eat. Young scientists will make sciencey treats they can eat, and we make some liquid nitrogen ice cream for everyone. Warning: This program is delicious! Allergen advice on all products used in the workshop is provided to centres beforehand, and we do our best to to provide alternatives for children with certain food allergies, intolerances or aversions.

Toy Science

If you heard the words friction, inertia, energy, momentum, velocity, gravity, magnetism and electricity, you would probably think this was a science lesson. But all of these principles of physics are used to create toys! Join us and learn about toys and how science makes them work. Program includes science show demonstrations of science toys; an investigation into different types of toys; and an opportunity for the children to make their own science toy.

Slime

Are all slimes the same? No way! Come and discover the sticky, slimy and gross world of slime. All participants will have the chance to make and keep their own slimy creations.

Flight

Explore the forces that make planes, helicopters and rockets fly with this soaring science show. Students then make their own flying machine and blast off their own mini rockets. Includes 30-minute show and 30-minute activity.

Amazing Air Pressure

Although we may not usually take much notice of it, air pressure is around us all the time…in fact, we couldn’t survive without it! Watch as we harness its power for a huge range of amazing things – think levitating balls, explosions, implosions and flying toilet paper – then use the explosive power of air to launch mini rockets.
