Learn About

Volcanoes is a great introduction to earth sciences. It explains how a volcano forms and explains the difference between magma and lava. Children will pretend to be volcanoes erupting and even get to make their own volcano out of bicarb and vinegar!

Questacon's Science Time is 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. In Science Time children will investigate the exciting world around us by participating in activities and experimenting, in a friendly and inclusive environment.

For information and bookings go to the Science Time webpage.
