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
“We have had Science Alive here at our Vacation Care Program many times now and the children always ask to see it again. Mick has a variety of shows which the children love. It is ALWAYS entertaining

“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.”
“Fantastic! We are looking at doing all the topics covered by Science Alive.”
“Educational and fun. The kids loved it!”
“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.”
“Great presentation, very enthusiastic. The children were very engaged and learnt lots about Science. Well done.”
“Thanks Mick – as usual the show was most educational and thoroughly entertaining. A great motivator as we begin our unit on Energy.”
“This is the third time we’ve used Science Alive and we have always enjoyed it. Mick has an amazing way of presenting a lesson. It was interesting, educational, yet entertaining. Great group control! Thank you. We are totally impressed.”
