Community Provider

We will be offering exciting holiday programmes during the next school holiday for community providers.


Crazy Contraptions

During this 90 minute session children will explore simple machines that they use in everyday life. Discover how these machines use different types of energy and forces to help them move and work.  Children will use Lego to build levers, gears and pulleys to design their own wheeled Crazy Contraption.  Will they be the next incredible engineer with their enlightening invention?  Can their contraption pass the test?



Lost In Space

On a mission in space the explorers ventured into the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter but were knocked off course by a rogue asteroid.  Your continued mission is to support the astronauts on their return flight to Earth. Can you help them unscramble all of the muddled space samples?  Can you help them to save fuel by deciding what needs to be ejected from the space craft?  How can you get back?  Can you use the stars to navigate?  Join Science Alive on their quest to save the mission.
