Science Shows

Science in a Van travels to you and sets up in your primary or intermediate school. This makes for an easy, exciting and affordable way to enhance your science programme.

Is it a theatre show? Is it a science lesson? It's both!

There are lots of topics for you to choose from and they are outlined below. Each science show encourages the students to think like scientists and there are shows which cover content from the Material World and Physical World Strands of the NZ Science Curriculum. There are also FREE classroom resources that link in with each show (thank you Science Learning Hub!)
