About this Event

Do you have a bright spark at home who needs a challenge?

Thanks to the Department of Education and Training this engaging STEM workshop is free for all high-ability students and those needing extension in years 3-6 at Victorian government schools. Making Connections is a hands-on exploration of physics and forces where students have time to experiment, theorise and prototype. The ultimate goal of the activity is to create your own chain reaction using everyday forces and objects.
