Early Years Workshops

We know that all little kids are natural scientists and problem solvers.

Inspire your little learner to think big and nurture their curiosity for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) with us.

Led by a Scienceworks educator, join us for workshops that explore different STEM topics and encourage children to use their senses to observe, question, predict and investigate the wonders of the world and everyday life.

In a play-based learning setting, you and your little one will listen to stories, sing songs, participate in exciting hands-on STEM challenges, and share discoveries.

Connect with your child, other parents, grandparents and caregivers at Scienceworks for a standing playdate.

Shake, Rattle and Roll!

Let’s make some noise for the next Little Sparks workshop!

See what you can bang, twang or jangle as we explore concepts of sound and vibrations in the world around us. First we get things shaking with some sound-sensational science demonstrations to ask – what is sound and how do we hear it?

Next it is time to discover ways of making your own music-maker, experimenting with different materials and objects. Can you make your instrument change its sound from quiet to loud? Low to high? Play it loud and proud as part of the first ever Scienceworks junior junkshop band!

For ages 3+ only, suitable for 3 – 5 years.
