See gigantic bubbles, flying toilet paper, hair-raising electricity experiments, bubbling liquid nitrogen demos, levitating beach balls, volunteers on a nail chair, a giant gyroscope, fire balls, coloured shadows, a flame equalizer and much more!

This great 'science sampler' was originally developed as the main stage show for 2008 Australian Science Festival in Canberra as a way of introducing science into the greater community. Perfect for schools that want a professional large stage performance in their school hall, with an added bonus that a show catering up to 240 students at a time is also more economical per student.

Students love this as an end of school term treat or as something to get the kids back into science!

Many thanks for a fantastic day last week. The Big Science Show got rave reviews from both children and adults alike.

Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

  • PW1 Change to an object's motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object (ACSSU117).
  • PW2 The action of forces that act at a distance may be observed and related to everyday situations.
  • PW3 Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and causes change within systems (ACSSU155).
  • CW1 The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (ACSSU151).
  • CW2 Scientific knowledge and developments in technology have changed our understanding of the structure and properties of matter.
  • The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (ACSSU229)
  • Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations (ACSSU190)

NSW Science Syllabus Content:

A student:
  • develops knowledge of the Physical World, Earth and Space, Living World and Chemical World, and understanding about the nature, development, use and influence of science (SC4-10PW).
  • describes the observed properties and behaviour of matter, using scientific models and theories about the motion and arrangement of particles (SC4-16CW).
  • describes the action of unbalanced forces in everyday situations (SC4-10PW).
  • applies models, theories and laws to explain situations involving energy, force and motion (SC5-10PW).

For us to provide the best possible learning experience, the materials used during the presentation may be varied to suit the conditions and the audience. Please chat with our presenter if there is a particular focus that you'd like us to cover.


$990 inc. GST per science show performance (this works out at $4.13 inc. GST per student).

Call 1300 856 828or use this form to inquire or make a booking for your high school.
For schools outside of metropolitan areas please contact us to discuss how this workshop can visit your school as part of a regional visit.

We don't charge per student as we know that this causes an additional administrative load on your school office. Most schools tend to fill the science workshops & shows based on our recommended maximum number of students. If you have any questions please contact us.
