Preschool Science 1

Preschool Science 1

Science incursion for preschools
Discover the science of toys; push/pull forces, light/sound & magnetism

Station-based science activities that kids love!

Kids aged 3 to 5 years old will have a blast as they investigate energy and use their senses to discover how the science activities and toys operate.

Designed to prepare early learners for the Physical Phenomena content strand for Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 in school. This workshop utilises stations based around push and pull forces, gravity and energy change. Great for budding little scientists!

School Testimonials


Lucas Street Childcare Center

We liked the fun way it was presented. Allowing children to investigate 'why'... questioning the children. We recommend for future use for other centres. Thanks a heap for a great morning!

Alpha Beta Kindergarten College

Lots of activities for (the) children to experiment with. The presenter gained the children's attention quickly, with a good mix of presenting and time for individual experiences. Plenty of teaching opportunities and engaging for the students.
