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
“All comments by teachers and children attending were very positive. The price was great, as some incursions are getting too expensive.”
“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.”
“The children were really absorbed, energised and motivated. Fast moving, lots of information and action. Science is alive!!”
“We appreciated the simple yet creative experiments and your control of students. It was great! You really got the message across to the kids.”
“Great presentation, very enthusiastic. The children were very engaged and learnt lots about Science. Well done.”
“The students were totally engaged throughout the show. Mick has a lovely manner with the children, they respond well to him. Loved it, thank you.”
“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.”
“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 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.”
“Fantastic show as before. Such a variety of ages and it all worked so well. I loved how there were so many opportunities for volunteers. We would not hesitate to have you come out again. Wonderfully entertaining and educational – Thank you Mick!”
