Whale science shows with Australian National Maritime Museum

Written by Ben Newsome on April 24th, 2014.      0 comments

Throughout Easter 2014 Fizzics Education worked with the Australian National Maritime Museum to produce a Whale Science Show for the school holidays. This show was developed to coincide with the installation of a whale exhibition within the museum and bring new visitors into the Darling Harbour site.

Designed to cater for a wide range of audiences, the show combined environmental messages with the physical sciences into daily science presentations. Everything from whale communications, heat insulation from blubber, blowhole vortex rings, ecology and even whale snot was demonstrated with the help of volunteers. A lot of fun and well received by attending crowds, we even had the The Today Show weather crew down to play with some of the experiments during the morning news!

The popularity of science presentations in attracting the public cannot be underestimated. Many parents come up after the sessions have finished with comments about how they wish science could have been like this when they were their kids age. No matter what the topic there is always an engaging science presentation that can be put together to fit the purpose of the event. Lots of fun to put together, even better when they hit the public eye!

All the best,
