The Mt Barker Science Fair is designed especially for families with primary school aged children. It is hands-on, interactive and loads of fun.
Hold native animals, get up close and personal with invertebrates, try out some VR, take part in a workshop or be entertained by one of our fabulous science shows. And yes, we've got slime... and dinosaurs!
If you've got a child that loves all things science and technology, imagine the possibilities! It's bound to be their "best day ever"! And we've got you covered too, with coffee and catering available.
