Got a science kid who loves wildlife? The Australian Museum is hosting another Scientist for a Day workshop, where kids can become wildlife detectives and uncover the genetic mysteries of the animal world.

Aimed at children aged nine to twelve and held over two full days - 9.30am until 3.30pm, the workshop is hands-on, allowing children to explore the world of animal genetics and explore the Wild Planet exhibition , and find out more about the spectacular animal kingdom and its genetic mysteries.

Not only that, during the workshop, children will go-behind-the scenes and meet geneticists from the Australian Centre for Wildlife Genomics , which is based at the Australian Museum Research Institute- this is where the real science happens, and where children will get to meet the scientists.

During this workshop, children will get to expand their knowledge and unravel the secrets of DNA while they learn to extract DNA themselves. If your child is interested in genetics, this is the perfect workshop for them to delve into the world of genetic traits and understand how they shape us – as well as the people we share traits with. This Scientist for a Day program is a social and educational workshop that runs for the whole day. It is designed to show young scientists what it is like to work in different areas of science and is $120 for members, and $150 for non-members.
