CSIRO Lab Workshops

All year round, on the holidays and out of school, we offer engaging workshops in our CSIRO Lab for young scientists, engineers and makers.

Scitech CSIRO Lab Workshops mainly cater for children aged 4 to 16 years old, with a variety of workshop topics on offer to ensure there's something for everyone.

Inspire your children to keep exploring the fascinating world of science and technology at home by igniting their interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with these hands-on activities at Scitech.

All workshops are held in the CSIRO Lab unless stated otherwise.
