Street Science brings real science to real kids

10 September 2015

Explosions, coloured fire, slime, robots, cool experiments and a stack more fun, hands-on activities will be coming to a Western Downs Library near you these school holidays when the Street Science team tour the region from Monday 21 September.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services Councillor Carolyn Tillman said all children, not just those interested in science, will love the great science-based activities planned by Western Downs Libraries for the coming school holidays.

“The Street Science team are a huge drawcard for the school holidays as their entertaining shows and workshops put the fun and excitement back into science,” she said.

“Young participants can expect to get messy, loud, interactive, and have lots of fun at their local library as we bring the coolest science experiments to our Libraries.

“Kids will be able to make snow and slime with the Street Science team; build a Vibrobot from scratch; create a movie trailer; learn the basics of coding with colour-coding robots; conduct experiments with everyday items; and a whole lot more.”

The Street Science team are fully qualified presenters who ensure that all workshops are safe, engaging and educational.

Places are limited, so bookings are essential. To secure your place for the Street Science workshops, or any of Western Downs Libraries school holiday activities, and to find out more visit, phone 1300 COUNCIL or email
