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 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.”
“Educational and fun. The kids loved it!”
“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.”
“We appreciated the simple yet creative experiments and your control of students. It was great! You really got the message across to the kids.”
“The students thoroughly enjoyed the show and the teachers were very positive. Very good value for money as cost is always a factor.”
“The show was full of energy and information. The presenter was excellent at involving the children.”
“Terrific show Mick! The kids were thoroughly entertained the whole time. And of course we know that this is when they learn the best!”
“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!”
“Don’t change a thing! We loved the rapport with the kids. Humour, pace and lots of participation. An excellent balance of information and entertainment. A great inspiration to follow up an interest in science. See you again soon.”
“The children were really absorbed, energised and motivated. Fast moving, lots of information and action. Science is alive!!”
