Prep - Chemical Sciences

Big Bang Education’s ‘What’s It Made From?’ program has been designed to help teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understanding in Chemical Sciences:

  • Objects are made of materials that have observable properties (ACSSU003)

Students will participate in a hands-on workshop investigating materials found in everyday objects, and identifying some of the properties of these materials through their observations and experimentation.

Workshops are delivered by a professional science educator with over 10 years of experience.

If you’d like to book your Prep students in for our ‘What’s It Made From?’ program, please contact us.


The program includes:

  • 60 minute session with hands-on activities and interactive demonstrations for each individual class (maximum of 30 children)

Depending on your daily timetable, we can cater for 2-5 classes per day.

  • 8 tables for workshop materials

No access to power or water is required for this program.
