At the centre, we DO science, TRANSLATE science, COMMUNICATE science, and all types of people are EXCITED by and ENGAGED in science.
Hands-on exhibits and science experiments with unique large equipment are the keystones of all education programs. To perform experiments in gravity, students drop water balloons from the 45 metre high Leaning Tower. All education programs are based on the Australian Curriculum Science, with a strong emphasis on Science as a Human Endeavour. Further details can be found at gravitycentre.com.au/education/primary.
