Early Years Workshops

We know that all little kids are natural scientists and problem solvers. 

Inspire your little learner to think big and nurture their curiosity for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) with us.

Led by a Scienceworks educator, join us for workshops that explore different STEM topics and encourage children to use their senses to observe, question, predict and investigate the wonders of the world and everyday life.

In a play-based learning setting, you and your little one will listen to stories, sing songs, participate in exciting hands-on STEM challenges and share discoveries.

Connect with your child, other parents, grandparents and caregivers at Scienceworks for a standing playdate. 

Tot Wheels

It’s time to ramp it up for the next Little Sparks workshop!

Go fast, go slow, go high and go low as we explore concepts of wheels and axles, gravity and friction. Along with storytelling and songs, we examine wheels, gears and all things rolly-polly to ask – what makes things turn? 

Once we’re on a roll, we try planning, problem solving and critical thinking by building inclined planes and making objects slip, slide and wheel down the ramps. Can we change the speed of the objects? Will the wheels stay on? Will it be a smooth ride or a bumpy one? A slippery ride or a fuzzy one? Let your little engineer find out!

Suitable for 3–5 years.

To find out more, join the Little Sparks Facebook Event.

Please note that parents/carers are expected to participate in the workshop. Recommended maximum of two children per parent/carer. Children aged under 3 are welcome to attend the workshop with their participating older sibling and parent/carer.
