Game Changes & Change Makers
Running in August each year, Science Week is a national event celebrating all things science and technology.
Established in 1997, National Science Week has continued to grow over the years and now boasts over 1000 events nationwide, with over 1 million participants. From primary schools, high schools, universities, libraries and museums, students and people of all ages are encouraged to acknowledge the contribution made by Australian Scientists to the world, whilst fostering their own interests in science pursuits in the world in which we live.
In 2018, the theme for National Science Week is ‘Game Changes and Change Makers’ focusing on the scientists, engineers, technologists, mathematicians, designers, and innovators of the past and present.
National Science week is a great opportunity for your school, before and after school care service, early learning centre or library to partake in a range of learning initiatives and experiences, highlighting the significance of science and technology in everyday life and across the globe. As such, the Team at Fun Day Out have an extensive list of suitable science and technology-based incursions and excursions which can easily be included into your program or curriculum throughout the year and satisfy the requirements of your framework and outcomes.
From exploring natural phenomena and energy with The Jollybops, to challenging your students’ curiosity with Paul Grierson in Scientifix, to using household objects to make bubbles larger than ever before with Dr Hubble, or even learning the intricate details of combustion power through dismantling a combustion engine piece by piece with Get Your Engines Ready, Fun Day Out are sure to have something guaranteed to excite and inspire your children.
