Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

 
  • The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005).
     
  • Objects are made of materials that have observable properties (ACSSU003).
     
  • A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (ACSSU033).
     
  • Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed (ACSSU020).
     
  • Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another (ACSSU049).
     
  • Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076).
     
  • Changes to materials can be reversible, such as melting, freezing, evaporating; or irreversible, such as burning and rusting (ACSSU095).
     
  • Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077)

NSW K - 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

NSW Science Syllabus Content: A student:

 
  • identifies that the way objects move depends on a variety of factors (STe-6NE).
     
  • identifies that objects are made of materials that have observable properties (STe-9ME).
     
  • describes some sources of light and sound that they sense in their daily lives (ST1-6PW).
     
  • describes effects of pushes and pulls on objects they encounter (ST1-7PW).
     
  • identifies ways heat is produced and that heat moves from one object to another (ST2-6PW).
     
  • describes everyday interactions between objects that result from contact & non-contact forces (ST2-7PW).
     
  • identifies the observable properties of solids, liquids and gases, and that changes made to materials are reversible or irreversible (ST3-12MW).

Science Show Demonstrations

Burning hands
Seriously, how can someone hold a flame in their hand?
Magic money trick
How can a $1 US bill survive a flame? A classic 'magic trick'

Test student's observation & deduction skills as we expose this street science trick
All Aglow
Discover the energy levels in different lasers using glowing photoluminescent vinyl
Colour my fire
Learn the chemistry of fireworks as we create colourful flames on stage
Whoosh bottle
An experiment that sounds just like it is named!
Waves, high & low
We use an oscilloscope to discover how differences in pitch & loudness really look
Screaming rod
A classic demonstration of high pitch & fast vibrations... cover your ears!
Screaming cans
A simple experiment that students can do at home
Chaldni plate
We create beautiful patterns in sand through vibrating harmonics
Can crusher
We use atmospheric pressure to crush cans in a flash
Balloon in a vacuum
What happens to a balloon when you remove air around it?
Expand-a-foam
Watch the foam rise and rise as it's subjected to low pressure
Hovercraft
If you reduce friction... you can ride on air!
Elephants toothpaste
So many students ask for this experiment... lets make it big!
Dry ice rainbow
A giant column of changing colours... it's all about acids & bases!

  • Appropriate for Years K to 6 with a maximum of 240 students per science show
  • The show is adjusted when run for younger audiences, concentrating more on sound & forces
  • Access to 2 electrical power sockets and 3 tables
  • Chairs are not required
  • Duration 60 minutes, set up time 45 minutes and pack up time 45 minutes
  • Ability to turn off your fire alarms if we are to run fire demonstrations
  • We will need your room able to be darkened to run some of the sound demonstrations
*Some science experiments may be varied depending on the age of the attending audience

Cost

  • $990 inc. GST per science show performance (at show capacity this works out at $4.13 inc. GST per student)
  • Available in NSW and Victoria only
  • In a regional area? Find out how we can attend your school as part of a country science tour!
Call 1300 856 828or use this form to inquire or make a booking for your primary school.

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 on our science incursions please contact us.
