Other workshops in our School Holiday Program

Science on the Go! - Workshops 

Science on the Go!

We bring the world of science to life, by opening kids up to the connections between what they are doing and the way it relates to science. .



In this workshop, your child will have hands-on experience in 4 different experiments and switch on their minds to the exciting world of science!

Decorate it Workshops

Come and decorate your own Dragon Egg with jewels and beads! Plus we will decorate a selection of baked foods, jars & more.



This is a fabulous way for kids to have creative fun designing their own precious Dragon Egg, to decorate sweet treats and something to take home at the end!


Construct It Workshops

Kids choose to make their own vehicle: truck, plane or train to take home. Plus plenty of large boxes to transform our space into their own world.


Cardboard creations

Kids can join together to make large, group constructions such as cities, castles etc. Or they can construct individual creations as they are inspired.


This workshop has each child creating unique Stop Animation video of their own. They each get to devise a script, characters, create some scenery and shoot their video. This can get very addictive as kids often get inspired to make lots of videos.



Kids must bring a smart phone, ipod or tablet, with the Stop Motion Studio app loaded onto it. Then we will help them make simple, fun animations via their device and the app. And you can later download their videos at home!
