Science Time—a fun and interactive learning experience for little scientists aged 3-6 years and their carers.

Just like real scientists, children explore their world and ask lots of questions. Science Time lets them participate in activities that include singing songs, reading books, playing and experimenting. They will learn about the world in a friendly and inclusive environment. Topics change every three weeks.

Science Time is open to everyone and is free with your paid admission or Q Club membership.

Cancellation Policy—Please read carefully

Because Science Time is very popular we need your assistance to maximise opportunities for all families to access the program. We understand that sometimes it is necessary to cancel a booking. If we know in advance of an absence we can offer the place to a child on our waiting list. To help us provide Science Time to as many children as possible we request that you please notify us of all cancelations via email to as soon as possible (even after the event if necessary). If you incur two un-notified absences (in total), we reserve the right to cancel the remainder of your bookings for that term and make your place available to those waiting. Thank you for your cooperation.
