Science in a Van delivers fast paced, high energy science shows! Since 2011, we've been sparking excitement among both staff and students through our enjoyable, cost-effective, and captivating approach to science.

We come to you which means that there's no additional travel costs, recruiting parent helpers or the paperwork that comes with going off-site.

The pricing is simple too and usually works out to $6.50+gst per student. 

How will the day look? Here's a sample timetable (this can be adjusted to fit with your bell times):

9am: Science in a Van arrives and sets up

9.45–10.30am: Science Show 1

11.30am–12.15pm: Science Show 2

12.15–12.45pm: Science in a Van packs up and leaves school

Each science show is 45 minutes long and covers the Nature of Science and the scientific process.
