Little Kickers
Across Perth. Programme runs throughout the school holidays.

Play not Push’ is our motto! Little Kickers is a positive, fun-filled pre-school program executed in a friendly, pressure free environment that encourages children to “Learn through Play”. We recognise that every child is an individual and feel that children develop their skills best when they are playing with other kids of a similar age and ability. We focus on the physical well-being of the child and also promote the development of social skills such as turn taking, following instructions and sharing. These skills are put into practise at a key stage of your child’s growth. Simple problem-solving activities provide the perfect informal framework for encouraging our fledgling Socceroos to advance their basic attention building and listening skills. By playing fun games that include specific actions and movements children gain greater body control, whilst working on balance, co-ordination and gross motor skills. Our program also helps children to transition from parent-supported participation, to active, independent interaction through building skills and confidence.

Explore-a-Saurus, City West, Perth

Step back in time to when dinosaurs reigned supreme and get up-close-and-personal with these prehistoric creatures in Scitech's latest feature exhibition, Explore-a-saurus.
Meet moving and roaring animatronic versions of some of the world's most famous dinosaurs including Tyrannosaurus Rex, the King of the Cretaceous Period, and Muttaburrasaurus, one of the most complete dinosaur skeleton specimens ever found in Australia.
This exciting exhibition links visitors to the evolution of our planet through hands-on and interactive exhibits with STEM themes (science, technology, engineering and maths).
Become a palaeontologist for the day and use fossil evidence to uncover amazing dinosaur facts, such as what dinosaurs ate, how fast they ran and how they cared for their young. Through biology, discover what features made dinosaurs thrive in their environment for so many millions of years or use maths skills to test the strength of a T-rex bite. Engineer trumpets to replicate dinosaur sounds and investigate the technology that make our animatronic dinosaurs move and roar.
And make sure you keep an eye out for Bucky, our 4metre tall roaming juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex, who will be making regular appearances in the BHP Exhibition Gallery. More playful than threatening, our expert handlers are kept busy with dinosaur and crowd management. However don't expect Bucky to be too safe and predictable....
