What people are saying about our science shows & workshops
The presenter was enthusiastic and animated about all things scientific... his presentations were exciting for the students. The programmes specifically suited the stage level and worked perfectly. I was very impressed with the range and complexity of the equipment provided and the generous 'hand-on' use of it. A very valuable resource.

How can remote and regional schools get a science show visit?
This is quite easy actually. Simply mix and match science shows & workshops using the primary or high school sections of our website. As we arrange a flat rate per staff member per day the only considerations needed are the following:
Number of students and year levels we will need to cater for. Generally 30 students is a maximum per science workshop, where as shows can handle larger audiences. Once you know the number of science workshops or shows you require, we can then work out how many staff you may need over the number of days you have in mind. As long as we can fit the school workshops in our utes, we can do it!
Please be aware of setup and pack up times for each school science workshop. These are listed within each school workshop description, including other associated requirements. We are quite flexible with arranging things around your schedule and location, we just need to know what you have in mind.
Costs simply depend on your location in relation to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane plus the number of staff and the number of days the science visit requires. For small schools consider partnering with a nearby school to share costs - you can turn it into a school camp!
Funding for remote and rural school science shows is often available.
