Discover patterns and relationships in the living world by engaging with hands-on, interactive exhibits that uncover the secret life of our trees, oceans, insects and backyards.
Learning about backyard biodiversity is an important way to understand why even the smallest critters are so important. Students can grow their understanding of how all living things depend on each other to survive. Take this back to the classroom and see how it applies to your school’s environment. Is there a project you can undertake together?
Our Science Presenters are available to take your class on a guided excursion through the exhibition. This can include a trip to the Puppet Theatre for a new show for our younger visitors (kindergarten to year 2). Go on an underwater adventure that builds maths and problem-solving skills in a quest to solve ‘A Fishy Problem’. Your visit is supported by an Education Guide that includes pre- and post-visit resources.
In this science puppet show, students will use maths, patterns and logic as well as observation to help solve a fishy problem. It also introduces young students to the concept of being an audience member.
Discover how we can use creative problem-solving to tackle two of the biggest global challenges – energy and waste. In this interactive science show, visitors will learn how to innovate new solutions for a ‘lightbulb moment’ that will improve our world.
Capture students’ imagination with three imaginative and interactive exhibits designed to illustrate how a tree grows. Explore why trees are so important, and what they can tell us about climate change.
Students can build science literacy and learn more about how trees live and grow with these large-scale representations of transpiration, photosynthesis, carbon storage, and dendrochronology – the study of time using tree rings.
It’s a whole new way of learning about how trees live and survive in their environment.
