The WILD PLAY Discovery Centre is in Centennial Parklands towards the end of Dickens Drive.

Centennial Park is based on one-way streets. It is easiest to approach Dickens Drive from the Lang Road entrance of the park on the northwestern side. Continue along Dickens Drive past Loch Avenue and the centre will be on your left just before the bridge. Park your car on the street and walk 150m from the road and you’ll find us there in the WILD PLAY Discovery Centre!

2019 October Holidays Science Programs at Centennial Parklands

Destination Moon and Beyond!

Discover the science required to reach the Moon and the space programs that made it all happen. From trajectories & orbits to rocketry & materials science, we’ll look at current and future space programs, operations and missions. Discover astronomy and gain insight into our place in the Universe, learn how to build and use a telescope and launch rockets high into the sky!

Friday, October 11 Time: 9:00am to 12:00pm

Use the Forces

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

Friday, October 11 Time: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
