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.

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.
