Summer Toddlerfest 2023

Introduce your budding scientist to the world of science, with exciting activities designed to stimulate the imagination of those under 5.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Join us as we take you from flight school to space travel in toddler-sized planes, craft your own rockets under the glittering stars, and plant, sort, and count in a Martian Garden. Designed to spark wonder in what exists inside and outside our world, there’s something to engage and inspire every little mind this Toddlerfest. 

Find out how plants and animals move in the bush in an interactive puppet show. Enjoy stories read by real astronauts on The Big Screen and embark on a cosmic journey of the night sky with your little ones in the Scitech Planetarium! Plus, there’s lots more to see, hear and learn.  

Toddlerfest is all about being inquisitive and learning through play. Specially designed for little scientists aged up to 5 years and their families, this event aims to encourage STEM discovery through problem-solving, imagination and creativity.  

Please note advanced online bookings are essential.
