An awesome science show performance for those schools who've had us on stage before!

An awesome science show performance for those schools who’ve had us on stage before!

Have you had us for Big Science Big Fun 1 or Tick Tick BOOM?
Join us for more science on stage with Big Science Big Fun 2!

From lasers & hovercrafts to dry ice rainbows & holding flames, this science show is perfect for schools wanting students to discover more about our world! Designed for large audiences from grades 7 to 10, this show is cost-effective, easy to arrange and is a sure winner with the students!

“It was seamless from start to finish. Ben the presenter was knowledgeable and really funny.  He focused on energy which is the topic we are doing so the whole show was terrific. I thought the pracs were relevant and appropriate for the age group.”

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)

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

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).

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

Chemical change involves substances reacting to form new substances (VCSSU098)

Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object; Earth’s gravity pulls objects towards the centre of Earth (VCSSU103)

Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat, light, chemical energy and potential energy; devices can change energy from one form to another (VCSSU104)

Chemical reactions, including combustion and the reactions of acids, are important in both non-living and living systems and involve energy transfer (VCSSU126)

The description and explanation of the motion of objects involves the interaction of forces and the exchange of energy and can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (VCSSU133)

Feedback on the Big Science school incursion


  • Appropriate for Years 7 to 10 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

* experiments may vary depending on the average age of the audience and the constraints of the location
