Here’s How Street Science Will Keep The Kids Entertained These School Holidays

Jun 24, 2021 | For Parents

With school holidays just around the corner, you’re probably looking for all kinds of fun activities for your kids to pass the time. And this is where Street Science has you covered! We’re bringing our brand of seriously fun science shows and workshops to shopping centres and community events across South East Queensland over the winter break.

Engaging Entertainment by Australia’s Leading Science Educators

Street Science has been in the business of creating unforgettable science experiences for almost a decade now. Since 2012, we’ve worked with countless communities across Queensland to deliver our high-octane science stage shows and immersive workshops that bring the joy of science to children and adults alike. 

Whether it’s explosive demonstrations of brightly coloured fireballs or billowing dry ice clouds, or the classic interactive slime-making workshop, this is seriously fun science the whole family can enjoy. 

School Holiday Workshops at a Shopping Centre Near You

We offer interactive workshops for shopping centres that are creative as well as educational, and the best part is you get to take the science home with you as a special souvenir! Our workshops include

  • Wriggly alginate worms
  • Ooey-gooey slime
  • Fluffy instant snow
  • Beautiful bath bombs
  • Bright bouncy balls

For parents, the beauty of the shopping centre science workshop is that you can drop your kids off to get stuck into some fun science, which gives you time to get the shopping done and sit down to sip your morning coffee in peace.

Spectacular Science at the 2021 Samford Show

We’re incredibly glad to see the return of one of SEQ’s most beloved community events, the Samford Show, which will be taking place on July 10th and 11th at Samford Showgrounds. And what’s more, Street Science are excited to announce that we will be appearing at the Show to wow the crowds with some scintillating science!

Held in the picturesque Samford countryside, this landmark event showcases the most exciting attractions, the most vibrant local produce, and the best entertainment the region has to offer – and this year will also feature the Street Science Experience.

Street Science will be exploding into the Samford Show with our dazzling displays, including the science behind fireworks, which is sure to get a (chemical) reaction from any audience! We’ll also be running interactive bath bombs, slime and wriggly alginate worms workshops on both days.

This exciting event is the perfect way to wrap up your school holiday fun, so make sure you don’t miss out! Get your tickets to the Samford Show here.

Did you know that we also offer science parties? They’re the perfect alternative to hiring a magician, because all the science we demonstrate is real and just as much of a wonder to watch. Get in touch with us here to create your own Street Science Experience!
