Big Bang Education offers exciting science shows and workshops for vacation care and outside school hours care (OSHC) centres in the Greater Brisbane region and across South-east Queensland.

Sessions run for 60 minutes and can be adapted to suit groups of all ages. We can cater for a maximum of 30 children per session, and hold multiple sessions through the day for larger groups.

Vacation Care Science Program Themes

Edible Science

Our most popular Vacation Care program! We dive into the kitchen to see what science lies within the foods we love to eat. Young scientists will make sciencey treats they can eat, and we make some liquid nitrogen ice cream for everyone.

Warning: This program is delicious!

Slime

Are all slimes the same? No way! Come and discover the sticky, slimy and gross world of slime. All participants will make several types of slime, including some they can take home to gross out their families!

Flight

Explore the forces that make planes, helicopters and rockets fly with this soaring science show. Students then make their own flying machine and blast off their own mini rockets. Includes 30-minute show and 30-minute activity.

Amazing Air Pressure

Although we may not usually take much notice of it, air pressure is around us all the time…in fact, we couldn’t survive without it! Watch as we harness its power for a huge range of amazing things – think levitating balls, explosions, implosions and flying toilet paper. Students themselves get to make somethings explode!

Toy Science

If you heard the words friction, inertia, energy, momentum, velocity, gravity, magnetism and electricity, you would probably think this was a science lesson. But all of these principles of physics are used to create toys! Join us and learn about toys and how science makes them work. Program includes science show demonstrations of science toys; an investigation into different types of toys; and an opportunity for the children to make their own science toy.
