Junior Science Academy

Macquarie University are hosting Junior Science Academy classes for deaf and hard of hearing kids from 17 – 18 April

At the Macquarie Junior Science Academy, pre- and primary-school age children can explore the world in a new light through engaging and interactive experiences. Think space, dinosaurs, explosions, medicine, rocks and more!

Children are introduced to science concepts and skills in a safe and supportive environment. They meet others with similar life experiences and enjoy making new social connections.
Courses teach the concepts through experiments, art, drama, physical activity, craft and other hands-on activities.

Auslan interpreters will be available during teaching times on the classes.

Cost: $126.50 per day.

Parents may be able to claim some or all fees through the NDIS. Speak to your planner.
