These workshops incorporate fun and engaging activities to introduce science topics using simple hands-on activities for students and their parents.

Working through teacher 'champions' at a number of primary schools in Auckland, Family Science invite any interested students to attend our workshops together with one caregiver each.

The workshops introduce topic-specific scientific concepts, for example, for DNA and genetics they perform the extraction of kiwifruit DNA with associated interactive games and role plays, followed by an awards ceremony. 

The workshops aim to raise the level of interest in science-related current affairs across multiple generations, and to make science and technology accessible to communities who want more exposure to science beyond what the student has to learn in the classroom.
