Get your class excited about science and health research with our Discovery Centre schools program!

Our schools pilot program is returning for Terms 1 and 2 in 2021. For a limited time only, visit the Telethon Kids Institute for a FREE educational excursion aimed at students in years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The program goes for two hours and includes:

  • A visit to the Discovery Centre, where your students will learn about health and research through our interactive games
  • Hands-on science investigations run by our very own Telethon Kids researchers
  • A guided viewing of a real-life working lab

Activities may include:

  • Extracting DNA from strawberries
  • Measuring the level of glucose in soft drinks
  • Viewing cheek cells under a microscope
  • Using video technology to look inside an ear
  • Looking at different types of allergens using handheld microscopes.
