Make it count!
Discover the hidden maths in everyday activities as you get hands-on with science experiments and puzzles in this holiday workshop. Can you make a square wheel car roll? How can you determine wind speed? Is there a way to use triangles to work out building heights? Can you determine the number of animals in bushland? Bend and bounce light using prisms and mirrors...+ many others!
The kids get to perform investigations in density, buoyancy, chemical reactions and much more as we demonstrate that mathematics has a purpose in nearly everything we do. A fun workshop for kids who like to solve puzzles!
Please bring a snack, a drink and a hat with you on the day.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the program being held?
The Education Centre is located in Centennial Parklands towards the end of Dickens Drive.
Centennial park is based on one way streets and you are best approaching Dickens Drive from the Lang Road entrance of the park on the north western side. Continue along Dickens drive past Loch Avenue and the centre will be on your left just before the bridge. Please refer to the map below.
Park your car on the street and walk 150m from the road and you'll find us there in the centre!
Should my child wear old clothes?
My child is 4/5 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No, sorry. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the attention span and fine motor skills to enjoy the program content and length of the day. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
