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
“Thanks Mick – as usual the show was most educational and thoroughly entertaining. A great motivator as we begin our unit on Energy.”
“The children loved the show and participated in all the experiments. We are definitely booking again for the next holidays.”
“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.”
“A great show, once again. Our ‘thinking’ students were left asking many questions about the Swan River and are eager to find the answers.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“Science Alive was great. Firm with misbehaviour, fun, surprising, humorous and educational.”
“The students thoroughly enjoyed the show and the teachers were very positive. Very good value for money as cost is always a factor.”
“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.”
