New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.

Science fun for kids at the Botanical Gardens
These school holidays, the Australian National Botanical Gardens will be running science workshops, designed for children between 7 - 12. Each workshop lasts for 1.5 hours and costs $5 per child. Bookings are essential. There will be 3 workshops:

BUG BLITZ - Wednesday 27th September

Take a peek into the miniature world of insects and make your own scientific bug aspirator to take home, collect bugs and learn how to study them under the microscopes.

SEED BLITZ - Tuesday, 3rd October

Discover the hidden world of seeds and what an important role they play in our environment. Study seeds under the microscope, take a behind the scenes peek of the National Seed Bank and make your own native seed bomb to take home.

BEE BLITZ - Thursday, 5th October

Discover the secret lives of native bees, learn to identify native bees, spot native bees in the Gardens and make your own PVC bee pipe-hotel to take home.
