Join our April 2021 Science Workshops!

Our April 2021 Science Workshops will be running from Tuesday 13 to Thursday 15 April 2021 and will be filled with interactive hands-on home science for students. Due to the continuing COVID-19 safety measures, PrimeSCI! will still be providing live-streamed Zoom workshops for the school holidays.

Hopefully we'll be able to offer face-to-face workshops for the Winter school holidays.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 safety measures, PrimeSCI! will still be providing live-streamed Zoom workshops for the April school holidays.

The live workshops are scheduled to run for a minimum of 40 minutes and include exciting demonstrations, hands-on activities to follow at home, interactive polls, and the opportunity to post science questions to be answered by our PrimeSCI! presenters. We will be introducing a new workshop, Brains (Prep - Grade 4), to learn more about the important organ that controls the way we work, think and behave. And our popular Unseen World 2021 science workshop is back on!

PrimeSCI! will be joined again by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery (OzGrav) for our popular science workshop session - Virtual Universe and Black Holes (Grades 3-6). Take a trip out into the solar system with a virtual reality app for your smartphone.

  • Families will need one device to run Zoom for this online workshop, and one smartphone, tablet or iPad to run the free SciVR app. Please check that the SciVR app works on your device by downloading, opening and moving the device around to see a 360-degree view.

Please note: Children’s privacy and internet safety is important to us. Children will only be able to view our presenters, and not any other participants.

Enrolment fee: $10.50 per family (including Trybooking fee).

Capacity: Maximum 80 registrations per webinar session.

Our lives changed 12 months' ago because of something we cannot see - but the unseen has always been around, and we have found ways of living with them on our amazing planet. Explore the incredible world of microbes (and viruses), the impact they have on our everyday life, and understand why we must do the things we are asked to do now, to protect ourselves and one another. Learn more about the science of vaccines.
