See gigantic bubbles, flying toilet paper, hair-raising electricity experiments, 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!

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).

  • 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 light, movement and sound
  • 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 the Rubens tube or fireball demonstration
*Some science experiments may be varied depending on the age of the attending audience


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