Welcome to 2023 Science Week at Camp Australia! Join us on a journey of scientific discovery as we explore the world of innovation through wacky science experiments and awesome activities that will ignite your child’s curiosity and inspire their inner inventor this National Science Week!
Running from 14-18 August, Your OSHC After School Care will transform into a 'lab’ of innovation, encouraging children to engage in various science week activities from construction and creative projects to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) challenges.
Created by our Science Champions (aka educators) in Your OSHC, here are some of the activities our services will be taking part in during National Science Week. You can try these fun Science Week experiments with your child, using some of the materials available around your home!
