School Holidays

School holidays at Science Space are out of this world! Every school holiday period, we feature a series of special themed activities available for the public. These include but are not limited to extended opening hours, special full-day Science Camps and extra special pop up and pre-book available activities within the exhibition space.

The wonderful world of minibeasts!

These school holidays we are traveling from Space back down to Earth and heading into our own backyards. The living world around us on Earth is truly magnificent.

Did you know, about 97% of creatures on Earth are invertebrates, also affectionately known as MINIBEASTS and without them, we would not be able to survive. They help to pollinate plants, recycle waste material, provide food for other creatures such as birds and reptiles and much, much more.**

Come along to Science Space this October and you can explore the secret lives of MINIBEASTS! We will explore Bees, Butterflies, Stick Insects and a whole lot more.



School Holiday Science Camps

Science Camps at Science Space take STEM learning to the next level. Ours learn by doing, the hands-on methodology is brought to life in our Schoool Holiday Science Camps. Every school holiday period we offer a number of full-day (9am-3pm) Science Camps that members of the public can book into.

With themes that range from Superhero to Space, there is something for every aspiring scientist. Check out booking calendar below for any upcoming Science Camps available for booking. Please note, these camps sell out well in advance of their operation, so do plan ahead.
