Programs

Students in years 4-6 participate in 'hands-on minds-on' exploration of robotics and coding.
Examine the structure and function of enzymes through the example of amylase
Discover what is 'beneath our feet', how it got there and why it changes.
Be a rock detective and explore how rocks are made and classified.
Put on your lab coat and become a scientist as you explore physical and chemical changes and solve the mystery substance challenges.
Be a robot controller. Students explore how robots are controlled and take on a range of challenges.
Explore earthquakes through virtual reality and discover how they relate to tectonic plates. Work as an engineer and a geologist to survive the quake!
Explore energy transformations and determine the different types of change occurring through hands-on inquiry. Learn about fossil fuels and their impact on our world and what alternatives are available with renewable energy solutions.
Observing and measuring various hominins, investigating our own human evolution through accurate life size models and skulls.
We use energy every day to make life easier, from boiling the kettle to turning on the lights and travelling to school or work. Explore energy systems and their impacts on our environment.
Investigate the role of fire in Woowookarung Regional Park. Head out into the field and gather real time data on the impacts of fire and help build the ESRI database using GIS mapping.
A brief introduction into flight using experimentation with paper planes. Through investigation and inquiry, we look at what causes lift and steering in planes.
Be a paleontologist for a day whilst you discover fossils from millions of years ago.
Explore how PEM electrolysers and PEM fuel cells work, their current and potential future uses in society while comparing their benefits and costs with other alternative energy sources.
Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Create a range of circuits and see if you can master the 'mouse trap challenge'.
Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Create a range of circuits and see if you can master the 'mouse trap challenge'.
Bioengineer man-eating dinosaurs, put them on a lush tropical island, and invite tourists - what could possibly go wrong?
Have a blast in this exciting outreach program! Students will use 21st century problem solving and collaborative skills to design, engineer and launch a water rocket.
Students will explore why the ocean water looks blue by learning about light - how it travels and how we see colours of objects. They will observe some experiments with water and light and will be challenged to explore light by completing their own experiments using the scientific inquiry process of prediction, observation and explanation.
Explore key Australian and world man-made landmarks to identify key features. Students will be challenged to ‘design and build their own man-made wonder’ using materials found around the house or online platforms such as Minecraft or Lego Digital Designer.
Maps can show us streets and railways and cities and countries. But they can also show us what we can’t see, what we can only imagine, or how to build something. Become a map-magician!
Learn visual coding and use your math skills and strategies in a robot battle.
Take on the challenge to adapt a simple Lego EV3 robot to make it smarter by adding and coding sensors and motors.
Explore the geological history of one of Ballarat's oldest volcanoes and discover changes over time.
Join a STEM design challenge or science inquiry within the context of a picture storybook. Students will work through the engineering design process or scientific inquiry method relating to the chosen book.
Investigate forces through play based exploration of everyday items.
LEGO WeDo 2.0 robots will be used to develop and challenge a number of skills.
Explore rocks and minerals and how they apply to industry and to our daily lives. Identify minerals, go core sampling and find your treasure whilst metal detecting.
Earthquakes are devastating natural disasters. Engineers hold an essential job in minimising the impact of earthquakes on people and manmade structures. Are you ready for engineering challenges of a seismic strength?
Kids are natural STEM learners and we want to encourage this curiosity and learning engagement.
What is a turbine and why are they so important to our lives? Students explore the importance of turbines in electricity generation through hands-on challenges in which they are tasked to build a wind turbine, assemble a hydro-electric turbine and investigate how variables can impact performance.
This session is a brief introduction into geology.
Work as an analytical chemist in monitoring water quality. Use gravimetric analysis, UV-Vis Spectroscopy and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS) to analyze water.
