Kids science fun just for Christmas
CSIRO Education is offering kids the chance to participate in a special Christmas science event. Santa Science and Little Learners Santa Science will be two exciting hands-on workshops for kids aged 5-12 years. These events will be held at the Boggo Road Ecosciences Precinct from the 18th – 20th of December.

Participants can expect to get their hands dirty exploring plenty of cool Christmas science. Budding chemists will get to make bath bombs, junior physicists will be detecting UV with their own bracelets, whilst meteorologists can check the weather with their humidity-detecting angels. Santa will even be leaving some snot slime to investigate.

There are three planned for January but only two still have vacancies:
- balloon science 15/1/13
- light fantastic 17/1/13

see the website for further details www.csiro.au/Portals/Education/Programs/Double-Helix-Science-Club/Helix-events/DH-Events-OLDs.aspx

We looked into the Santa science workshops in early November not long after this article was first published, as I know that csiro kids events are very popular and usually book out quickly. They also have a mailing list you can join.

Hope this info helps!
