STEM Sundays at Scienceworks

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Can you program a robot? Can you wire up tech using everyday objects? Can you tell a story on Scratch?

To kick off the year, Scienceworks is offering a suite of fun robotics and coding workshops on Sunday afternoons at 1.30pm. All workshops take 90 minutes and numbers for each session are limited. Ticket prices vary between workshops from $25 to $40.

All workshops take 90 minutes and numbers are limited for each session.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. To get the most out of the workshop, we recommend the accompanying adult direct their full attention to the participating child.

Adults are not charged for children’s workshops – max one adult attending per child. Entry to the museum is required (entry is always free for Museum Members).

Please note that we have limited capacity in the space for people other than the participating child and adult.
