About

Questacon’s Primary School Shows are FREE, fun, and engaging ways for students to explore science.

Our goal is for students to get involved, test out their ideas, and spark a curiosity in science that they can take away with them inside and outside of the classroom.

Questacon presenters will guide your students through an hour of stimulating shows that students will have the opportunity to participate in and connect with. Our shows are catered to all age ranges and follow relevant concepts being taught in the current curriculum.

Things to know

These shows will be delivered during the weeks of 30 May to 19 June 2024 in Far North Queensland – Cairns, Mossman, Innisfail, Townsville, Ayr and surrounds.

  • Suitable for all primary school students.
  • Each show is 60 minutes in duration, and we can present up to 4 shows at a school per day. We will attempt to adjust these to fit into your normal school timetable where possible.
  • A team of two presenters will come to your school to deliver these shows. Adequate teacher supervision is required for each session.
  • Science Shows are FREE but registrations are essential as spots are limited.
