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 show was full of energy and information. The presenter was excellent at involving the children.”
“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.”
“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!!”
“We appreciated the simple yet creative experiments and your control of students. It was great! You really got the message across to the kids.”
“Very entertaining and educational. You held the students attention for the entire hour. Great experiments!”
“With the entertainment value of a stage production and great educational value, Science Alive is fantastic for motivating and encouraging students and teaches alike. Four months later children are still talking about ‘the Science Show’”
“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.”
“They loved every minute. Perfect for the children and the adults were equally enthralled. Entertaining – engaged with all, we loved the laid back, real Australian style – don’t change a thing. Thank you.”
