Junior Science Academy

Blast off into the world of science in a fun, safe environment.

Is your child ready to experiment, ask questions, wonder, investigate and - maybe - get a little messy? They'll do all this and more as they explore science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) concepts through fun, hands-on activities.

At the Macquarie Junior Science Academy, pre- and primary-school age children can explore the world in a new light through engaging and interactive experiences. Think space, dinosaurs, explosions, medicine, rocks and more.

Developed by experts and delivered by experienced teachers, the program is aligned with the NSW Science and Technology Syllabus and the Early Years Learning Framework.

Classes are relevant and age-appropriate,  including smaller classes for younger children, and more challenging content for older ones.

Update: There are limited places available during the October school holidays. Book now.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to clashes with the University and School Holidays limiting our space, we are only able to offer a reduced program this October. We apologise for any who miss out in October.

** The October program will also be in a different location to all our other programs this year. Please note carefully the change of location.
