Curious Kids – Science of Toys

Curious Kids – Science of Toys

Discover the science of toys; push/pull forces, light/sound & magnetism

Station-based science activities!

This science workshop utilises stations based around push and pull forces, gravity and energy change.
Designed to complement the Physical Phenomena content strand for Early Stage 1 and Stage 1, your students investigate energy and use their senses to discover how the science activities and toys operate.

OPTION: We can concentrate on ‘push and pull forces’ only if required.
A great way to expand your physical phenomena science unit!

Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!

Online Class Version

We’ve run live interactive distance programs since 2010 and are highly experienced in making online classes engaging for students on a variety of web conferencing platforms.

  • All of the same curriculum points will be covered, but the activities may vary from those listed for face-to-face incursions.
  • Our online classes include demonstrations, Q&A, and hands-on activities (you will receive a materials list upon booking).
  • Full child protections are in place
  • We usually connect to classes & homes via Zoom, however if you wish to use a different software we can work with you on getting the connection live.

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005).

Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed (ACSSU020).

A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (ACSSU033).

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

NSW Science Syllabus Content A student:

STe-5PW-ST
observes the way objects move and relates changes in motion to push and pull forces

ST1-8PW-S
describes common forms of energy and explores some characteristics of sound energy

ST1-9PW-ST
investigates how forces and energy are used in products

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

Objects are made of materials that have observable properties (VCSSU044).

The way objects move depends on a variety of factors including their size and shape: a push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (VCSSU048)

Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed (VCSSU049)

Respond to and pose questions, and make predictions about familiar objects and events (VCSIS050)

Participate in guided investigations, including making observations using the senses, to explore and answer questions (VCSIS051)

Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (VCSSU064)

With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and predict what might happen based on prior knowledge (VCSIS065)

School Testimonials

Croydon Park Public School

All students were totally engaged in the hands-on activities and extremely attentive during the demonstrations. Well planned, age appropriate and promoted higher order and lateral thinking. Highly recommended.

Berala Public School

Students were very enthusiastic during the performance and discussed many of the forces explored following the show. All were active participants. [This] workshop was an excellent support & challenge to our 'powering on' unit of work. It demonstrated what we had been learning but also posed more questions and challenges. We appreciated the teacher workshop for professional learning. Highly recommended.
