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
“A fantastic incursion by a dynamic and entertaining presenter. The students and staff were enthralled.”
“The children enjoyed the show and were able to recall lots of ideas. It gave us direction for our energy learning and we found the worksheet ideas helpful for us to design our own.”
“Thank you for a great holiday session! We had great feedback from our patrons, I’m sure we’ll be having you back.”
“Great presentation, very enthusiastic. The children were very engaged and learnt lots about Science. Well done.”
“The children were really absorbed, energised and motivated. Fast moving, lots of information and action. Science is alive!!”
“The students responded well to your performance and thoroughly enjoyed participating in the hands-on activities. Your hard work in presenting two dynamic shows were much appreciated by the staff and students. Thank you Mick.”
“Thank you Linda for the organising and answering my many questions. Thank you Mick – the shows were amazing with both the students and the teachers entranced!!”
“The fact that Science Alive is directly related to the Student Outcome Statements makes the program an invaluable resource. We found it dynamic and enjoyed the interaction. See you next year.”
“It was terrific. The kids were very excited and entertained, even the Year 8 to 10s. Mick was a pleasure to watch as he is so enthusiastic about his job. Thanks for travelling all this way.”
“Fantastic! We are looking at doing all the topics covered by Science Alive.”
