Kids in the Park at Sydney Olympic Park

In the 2017 April school holidays Sydney Olympic Park Authority again welcomes Fizzics Education to the Education Center in Bicentennial Park to provide a range of exciting, engaging and hands-on school holiday programs as part of the "Kids in the Park" favourites!

 

  • Half and full day holiday program workshops and activities appropriate for all Sydney school aged children!
  • Please bring food, a drink, a hat and appropriate clothing for hands-on science activities.
  • No nuts on site allowed
 

How to find the Education Center

Enter Bicentennial Park via the entrance at the corner of Australia Avenue & Shirley Strickland Avenue (suburb is Sydney Olympic Park). Follow the one way street past the function center. You should see signs to "P10f", the closest car park to the Education Center in Bicentennial Park. Walk 150m from the end of P10f car park and you'll find us there (refer to the map above). 

The closest train station to the Center is Concord West, not Olympic Park.

  • lunch and morning tea 
  • hat

  • any medications

    If children stay for the full day simply book your child into 2 x half day workshops and we'll take care of them during the break!

Use the Force(s) holiday workshop

Learn how objects really move!

In this fun holiday science workshop we'll use rockets, bike wheels, science toys and weird contraptions as we look in depth at how push and pull forces act to move objects. You'll discover how friction works as well as explore rotational forces and find out what inertia is all about. Plus, you'll make your own rubber band racer to keep...Newton would be happy here!

  • Please bring a snack, a drink and a hat with you on the day.

This program can be paired with the afternoon Gross & Gory science program to make a full day of workshops! Lunch break will be from 12pm-1pm and fully supervised by Fizzics Education.

Number Crunch holiday workshop

Make it count!

Discover the hidden maths in everyday activities as you get hands-on with science experiments and puzzles in this holiday workshop. Can you make a square wheel car roll? How can you determine wind speed? Is there a way to use triangles to work out building heights? Can you determine the number of animals in bushland? Bend and bounce light using prisms and mirrors...+ many others!

The kids get to perform investigations in density, buoyancy, chemical reactions and much more as we demonstrate that mathematics has a purpose in nearly everything we do. A fun workshop for kids who like to solve puzzles!
