School Holidays

Come out to the Gravity Discovery Centre these School Holidays (1st of January to 1st of February) to be part of our exciting school holiday program! (Please note that there will be no school holiday programs running on Friday the 4th of January)

Mondays & Fridays – Rocket Making

Our rocket making workshop is ideal for children aged 6-12 years and gives them an introduction into age appropriate rocket science.

They will start out the session by learning how to make straw rockets that they can launch by blowing on them. They will then advance to making rockets out of 1.25L bottles. Once the bottle rockets have been created, everyone will move outside where they will get to test how their rocket flies, by launching it from our AquaPod rocket launchers!

Please bring along an empty 1.25L bottle for this activity.

Wednesdays – Exploring Nature

Our ‘Exploring Nature’ program will get your kids up close and personal with our local flora and fauna by using fun and interactive ways to teach them about nature and animals (including dinosaurs, of course!)

This program will take everyone on a guided treasure hunt through the unique bush land surrounding the GDC, show you what tiny things look like up close by using a microscope (like fly legs and bee wings), help you plant your own native Australian flower in a pot (that you can take home and grow) plus more!
