CSIRO Lab Workshops

Throughout the year, we hold engaging workshops in our CSIRO Lab for young scientists.

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

Learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) in an engaging environment. Practice skills, explore ideas and build self-esteem and confidence as you make new friends with likeminded peers.

Bookings are now open. Click your favourite topic below and buy tickets today!

All workshops have 20 spots and are held in the CSIRO Lab unless stated otherwise.
