Junior Science Academy

Developing young scientists at Macquarie University! 

Whether it’s a school holiday class or supporting your school’s Science Club, we have a range of options to extend your child’s interest in STEM. 

The Junior Science Academy is a program of Macquarie University that teaches STEM concepts to pre and primary school aged children through hands-on, fun, interactive experiences. Aligned with the NSW Science and Technology syllabus and the Early Years Learning Framework, the program is developed by experts and delivered by qualified teachers with the support of pre-graduate students, all of whom have valid Working With Children Checks.

Classes are designed to ensure they are relevant and appropriate for the specified age group. This includes class sizes being smaller for those in preschool and lower primary, and more challenging content for those in upper primary. Check the program for details of the classes best suited to your child’s age.

Campus Classes

Held on the grounds of Macquarie University, classes run from 9:30-4:30pm, with supervision provided between 8:30-5:30pm, at a cost of $122 per day.

Children are to:

  • Wear comfortable clothing with closed in shoes
  • Bring their lunch, morning tea, afternoon tea and a water bottle

Each child is provided with a Junior Science Academy hat for walking around the Campus and outdoor play.

Children should be ready to experiment, question, wonder, investigate, and sometimes get a little messy as they explore STEM concepts and phenomena!
