Properties of Materials (Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3)

  24-Mar-2022      09:30AM
Live Event

What do scientists do when they test materials? What are they looking for? Learn about the variety of applications of materials research in everyday objects!


Find out how solids, liquids and gases change when rapidly heated and cooled. How is nanotechnology being used in the modern world? This science show covers phase changes, expansion and contraction, heat conduction, nanotechnology, polymers, materials science and more.

Suitable for: Primary years K – 6.


$200 inc GST per session with up to 30 students.
$300 inc GST per session with up to 60 students.
$400 inc GST per session with up to 90 students.

Learning Intentions & Success Criteria

A student:

Identifies ways heat is produced and that heat moves from one object to another (ST2-6PW).
Identifies that adding or removing heat causes a change of state between solids and liquids (ST2-12MW).
Identifies the physical properties of natural and processed materials, and how these properties influence their use (ST2-13MW).
Describes everyday interactions between objects that result from contact and non-contact forces (ST2-7PW).
Identifies then observable properties of solids, liquids & gases, and that changes to materials are reversible or irreversible (ST3-12MW).
Describes how the properties of materials determines their use for specific purposes (ST3-13MW).

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations less than 7 days prior to the event will incur 100% of the booking charge.
