Over the next three weeks, more than 1500 primary school students from Bindoon to Jurien Bay will have a chance to explore the universe and beyond, discover the properties of air and challenge themselves in hands-on activities.

In the Where is Air show, kindergarten to Year 3 students discovered air in all its hot, cold, smelly and windy glory.

They even ‘captured’ it to prove it was actually there.

Students in Years 4 to 7 investigated what things are made of and how they can change at the Undo-Redo show.

Among other things, they enjoyed separating materials with different properties from a mystery mixture.

‘Scitech tours aim to give regional students the same educational opportunities as those in Perth, so they can develop an active interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,’ said tour manager Emma Lucas.
