Science for kids at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

Biology in the heart of the city

Taking kids around the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney can offer so many learning opportunities! This week we completed another round of kids holiday science programs at the Maiden Theatre in the gardens and we couldn't help but incorporate a guided walk as part of the biology workshop we were running. So, with camera in-hand we took photos and discussed a number of things with the kids about the science all around them. It's such a fantastic open space in the heart of Sydney, we reckon you'd love to find out more about this place too!

What do we look for in science toys?

Science educational toys, they're everywhere! A trip to the shopping mall will take you quickly past racks of toys and gizmos, each proclaiming a variety of educational benefits that be gained. The question is, are the claims for these educational toys all that they're stacked up to be?

Building robots just got better

Delivering school STEM workshops across the country is such a rewarding job, especially when you get to hear from motivated teachers about the new edtech solutions they've come across! This week was one of these weeks where we heard about Robo Wunderkind, a combination of robotics and building blocks that's bound to grab kids attention!

Wow, three years in a row!

What a fantastic evening we had last night! Over one thousand people gathered for the annual Australian Small Business Champion Awards at Sydney's Westin for a celebration of the work done by small businesses across the country for their local communities. Fizzics Education was a finalist this year for the Children's Services section of the night and whilst we didn't pick up the gong this year we were very happy to have been again nominated three years running for our work in science education.
