Curriculum-specific STEM theory delivered in an entertaining format by industry experts. A unique opportunity to discuss real-world examples and participate in interactive explanations using aviation and aerospace concepts.
STEM Curriculum Based Year Levels
Experiment, Question & Have Fun Learning
PREP – YEAR 2
Everyone wants to know, how do you go to the toilet in space?’ What is it like to live in space and how do you get there? Let us use our soft foam indoor air-propelled rockets in an entertaining and fun introduction to concepts of forces and fair testing and take a look at things that are living and non-living. Together we will experiment to see how rockets fly and the importance of only changing one variable at a time.
YEAR 3 – YEAR 4
Talk a walk through the evolution of the modern rocket from Isaac Newton to modern day while discovering the importance of fair testing and design of different rockets. We will launch our air propelled, soft foam rockets across your assembly hall, indoor basketball court or undercover area, to explore balanced, un-balanced and opposing forces. There will also be time for a few giggles as we discuss animals in space and what might be next.
Year 5 - Year 6
NASA has plans to send humans back to the moon in 2024, it’s such an exciting time to study STEM right now. We will honour the pioneering astronauts and engineers who made the Apollo mission possible with a computer that is about as powerful as a basic calculator. We will pose the question to students ‘How big is our Solar System REALLY? Then run the numbers to determine the scale distances from our Sun, as well as the size of the planets. Delivered with a little bit of fun and trivia and the launch of our air-powered rockets years 5 & 6 will love this show.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the activities safe?
Safety is our profession and we have made every effort to minimise risk. Supervision of your children is your responsibility, where participants engage in activities at their own risk. Instruction in safety procedures and safe handling of equipment will be provided by the facilitator prior to field experiments. All workshops are covered by our Public Liability Insurance. We have an Activity Provider Risk assessment and all our facilitators and technicians are qualified to identify, reduce or eliminate potential risk of harm to all participants and will continue to be closely evaluated. We provide special considerations for participants with medical, behavioural or special needs who require additional assistance or support to ensure their participation is enjoyable.
