What's On

Picture this: a party. In the summertime. Time to partyyy!

Our annual summer party is back! Let's celebrate all things summer, members and air! Fly west for a special members’ preview of Air Playground, plus jam-packed summer program of breezy science fun! Don't miss the mania of spectacular gigantic bubble creations blown across the 'air-ena'. How many can you pop? 

Developed by a team of Scienceworks experts, Air Playground is a 600 square metre interactive playground where curious minds can connect, learn and experiment with our most precious resource. Members, you get to see it FIRST! 

Included in the Air Playground experience is Inflatable Adventures, a giant inflatable playground in the 'air-ena' where visitors can bounce, leap, squeeze and climb their way across a cloud of fun!

Not a member? Now’s the time to join online.


8.30am | Doors open enter through the Planetarium Foyer - Members only

8.45–9.15am | Blown Away! show 

Whoosh, BANG, pop! Science is in the air!
Learn about the invisible stuff all around us and the amazing effect it has on our world. We’ll explore fun properties of air by firing canons, launching planes, squishing and expanding air, and maybe even drift smoke rings gracefully through the audience with gentle puffs of floating fog. Inspired by Scienceworks’ new exhibition Air Playground, this exciting 20-minute live show is jam-packed with cool demonstrations.

9.15am–10am | Inflatable Adventure

Climb up into a colourful world, all floating on top of our favourite gas. You won’t just be walking on air, you’ll be bouncing, pushing, leaping, squeezing, and climbing your way across a cloud of fun!

10am–11am | Air Playground

Get pumped for a fun-filled exploration of our most precious resource—air. Journey through an immersive and buoyant experience, and experiment with the weird, squishy, powerful and elusive properties of air.

10am–12pm | Lounge

Members exclusive lounge: pack your picnic rug, sit back and enjoy a day of fun.

10am–4pm | Bubble Mania

How big can a bubble get? How long can they last? Which shapes can we make? Join the bubble team to make as many bubbles as we can in 1 minute! You’ll be entranced as we fill the air with colour as huge bubbles drift across the arena in our free 10 minute shows.
