Due to the evolving nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are postponing upcoming Term 2 and holiday visits to schools and communities as we put in place safety practices to protect our students, teachers and staff.

BUT, this won’t stop our talented team of scientists and science communicators from providing fun, interactive, play based resources to help you and your young scientists STEAM into the future!

Over the coming weeks we will be posting activities, links and ideas to play and learn at home or wherever you may be. From virtually exploring our Natural History Museum with Discovery’s much loved character, Tiny, to collecting different things around the house to make exciting chemical reactions, our online resources are sure to feed the curious mind!

Join us on a virtual adventure as we take play based science, technology, engineering, arts and maths across the ether to you.
