Education: School Holidays at the Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory

School excursions and incursions available at GDC. You can book a day time school excursion of our centre, and night time visits to our observatory, or a combination of both, each age group is guided through our galleries depending on the appropriate level of science.

Please visit our site to learn more about our the different programs available, or book your excursion now. We are offering 2 School Holiday Programs:

Our rocket making workshop is ideal for children aged 6-12 years and gives them an introduction into age appropriate rocket science. They will start out the session by learning how to make straw rockets that they can launch by blowing on them. They will then advance to making rockets out of 1.25L bottles. Once the bottle rockets have been created, everyone will move outside where they will get to test how their rocket flies, by launching it from our AquaPod rocket launchers!

Please bring along an empty 1.25L bottle for this activity.


Have your child’s questions and curiosities about space satisfied with our ‘Space Explorers’ program! Perfect for ages 5 and up (and with plenty to interest mums and dads) this program will teach kids all about our local solar system through interactive activities and teach them some of the skills it takes to become an astronaut!This will include interactive lessons and fun activities based around the requirements to become an astronaut!
