Turn your kitchen into a family-friendly science lab

Whether it’s a floating experiment that explains to kids why things sink, to one that shows just how quickly fizzy drinks rot your teeth (and therefore the importance of dental hygiene!), simple science activities you can do at home helps to nurture a sense of wonder and awe at the world we live in. And, for the Australian Government, that will hopefully mean a new generation of aspiring scientists and mathematicians. Teaching science to primary school aged children continues building on their comprehension so when they arrive at high school they’re well equipped for science. HomeHub has three easy science experiments you can do with the kids at home. Also, check out Kidspot, which has simple science quizzes – like how to make a marshmallow catapult; and Pinterest’s great ideas to help you create a science lab.   [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="690"]national-science-week-sydney-centennial-park-jurassic-park-dinosaur-attraction-kids On Saturday 18 August 2018, Sydney’s Centennial Park will turn in Jurassic Park as Erth’s Dinosaurs will roam as a key attraction at the Science in the Swamp – Dinosaurs vs Superpowers event.

National Science Week

Held all over the country between 11-19 August, National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology – or STEM as the kids call it these days! It features more than 1,000 events across the country, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres. These events attract a wide audience from children to adults, and science amateurs to professionals. Festivals, talks, demonstrations, forums, walks, performance and open days – there are literally hundreds of public events happening throughout the week.
