Energy and Change – Nothing stays the same
An exciting senior Physical Sciences overview. Energy basics, sun, food, light, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, gravity, mechanical, movement and stored energy and forces.
Electricity and Energy – A sustainable future
Energy use and electricity are crucial in our daily lives. Imagine life without mobile phones, computers, ATMs and air conditioners.
Forces – Stop, start or stay
Why do things roll, fall, bounce, slide, balance, spin or fly?
In the Dark? – Light and living
We’ll have a close look at light’s energy, making light, laser light, how light bounces (reflects), mirrors, how it bends (refracts), how it makes colour (absorbs) and shadows.
Earth and Beyond – Our blue planet
An overview of senior Earth and Space Sciences. Our earth’s landscape is ever changing.
Mind over Matter – Objects, properties and uses
Explore a variety of materials, their properties (including strength, hardness, absorbency, weight, buoyancy) and their uses.
Water – Properties, uses and sustainability
Water is crucial to life on earth. Explore the incredible properties of water and its uses. Find out how it is slippery and sticky at the same time, how it makes bubbles, powers rockets and keeps our earth cool.
What the teachers said
“The children loved the show and participated in all the experiments. We are definitely booking again for the next holidays.”
“A great show, once again. Our ‘thinking’ students were left asking many questions about the Swan River and are eager to find the answers.”
“Loved the clear explanations. It made the concepts seem simple to the kids, which is just how we want them to feel about science. The Worksheets are great. Thanks Mick and Linda. We love your work!”
“Everyone – teachers and students alike – raved about the shows. Very impressed with the way Mick related to young and old alike.”
“Excellent show, with very understandable concepts.”
“This incursion was very easy to organise. Thanks for your email explaining exactly what was needed! The children laughed and were excited to join in. They sat for a long time and were very focused.”
“All comments by teachers and children attending were very positive. The price was great, as some incursions are getting too expensive.”
“Science Alive was great. Firm with misbehaviour, fun, surprising, humorous and educational.”
“They loved every minute. Perfect for the children and the adults were equally enthralled. Entertaining – engaged with all, we loved the laid back, real Australian style – don’t change a thing. Thank you.”
“A fantastic incursion by a dynamic and entertaining presenter. The students and staff were enthralled.”
