Under 5 Fest - Celebrate Science through Play!

Under 5 Fest - Celebrate Science through Play!

Science Alive's annual Under 5 Fest begins tomorrow Tuesday, 21st March and will be running through till Sunday 26th March - located at Table Tennis Canterbury (Blenheim Road), our popular kids Science Festival will be better than ever!

Children and adults can explore a wide range of hands-on science-based activities.

The Under 5 Fest is a unique experience for young children, as all the exhibits are built with them in mind - they can interact with: farm animals from Pony Parties, the construction zone blocks + working crane, giant soft material bugs, a fully stocked puppet stage, giant gears, wind turbines and much, much more!

As always there will be our usual exhibits and some brand spanking new ones to play with.

The Under 5 Fest celebrates Science through play and encourages young children to ask questions about the world around them.

Under 2s are FREE entry
$6 per person (both children and adults above the age of 2)
