Looking for fun incursions to extend your student's knowledge in a certain STEM subject? Our incursions and workshop sessions are informal, hands-on learning. We encourage students to actively participate and allow them to extend their knowledge in the areas of interest. We have engaging and open discussions on  STEM concepts and use various media to reinforce learning. We design opportunities for students to “think with their hands” to construct meaning and understanding.

Our incursions are facilitated by a team of engaging and highly motivated staff.

Schools, Kindergartens, OSHC, and Vacation Care Centres

Duration: 1-2hr

Cost: $15-$18/student (up to 30 students per 1 hr session)

If you would like a customised incursion, please contact us.

Our Themed workshops have received support from Advance Queensland
