From February 10 – 25 Scitech is transforming into an exclusive playground for tiny scientists with Toddlerfest!
Toddlerfest includes hands-on activities, interactive shows, and creative workshops, providing Toddlers with the opportunity to imagine, discover and explore together.
Scitech has been split up into 7 activity zones;
Usually children under 4 years cannot attend planetarium shows, but during Toddlerfest nothing is off limits. The Beyond Earth show has been specially adapted for toddlers with shows only lasting only 10 minutes.
Where you can build walls, transport bricks in wheelbarrows, make shadows, discover the small aquarium or pretend you are in space.
You can also relax in the Better Beginning’s reading zone.
3. Kaartadjin Koorliny
This was our favourite zone, if you want to glow in the dark wear white or your favourite fluorescent colours.
My toddler loved building and racing the cars down the ramp and playing at the augmented reality table.
We also found sending the colourful scarves up the suction tubes lots of fun – I may have enjoyed this more than my toddler.
4. Big Stage
Weekdays: watch the interactive Dinosaur Train stage show! Go on a magical journey with Buddy and Tiny in this light-hearted, song-filled Dinosaur Train extravaganza!
10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
Weekends: move and shake like an animal at the Let’s Move Show.
10.30am, 12.30pm and 2pm.
5. Explore Your World
Identify, sort and match colours while making a pasta necklace, this is a great activity to practice fine motor skills.
There is also a range of hands-on exhibits to explore.
6. Science Theatre
Weekdays: join Kura the Paramedic Bear for the Zero, Zero, Zero, Hero! program aimed to teach children what to do in the event of an emergency through story.
Weekends: the breathtaking world of light with the Things That Glow Show.
7. Tinkering Space
The kids will have fun playing with the rainbow rice while experimenting with funnel systems.
Within the Planet Pioneers exhibit younger kids will enjoy the toddler-friendly play equipment.
Be sure to grab a program and plan your day so you don’t miss out on any of the shows.
There are only vending machines available inside Scitech, pack your own lunch and sit at one of the tables overlooking the City. Scitech is wheelchair and pram friendly, there is plenty of pram parking areas available. Cars are encouraged to park undercover at the City West complex where visitors will be issued with a ticket at the boom gate, this can be validated at Scitech’s ticketing counter for free parking.
