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
“Fantastic show as before. Such a variety of ages and it all worked so well. I loved how there were so many opportunities for volunteers. We would not hesitate to have you come out again. Wonderfully entertaining and educational – Thank you Mick!”
“The students really loved the show and were engaged throughout It really involved them in learning about science. Well done! They loved the fireworks at the end.”
“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.”
“Great part of 2005 Science Week. Inspired and motivated lots of students to get into science.”
“Your organising correspondence was fantastic. The whole group loved you. We would love to have you back later this year.”
“Fantastic! We are looking at doing all the topics covered by Science Alive.”
“A fantastic incursion by a dynamic and entertaining presenter. The students and staff were enthralled.”
“The children were really absorbed, energised and motivated. Fast moving, lots of information and action. Science is alive!!”
“A thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and educational show. Simple and well aimed at the age range”
