Think dinosaurs are extinct? Think again! Grab your fossil brushes and your paleontologist hat and head on down to Science Space as the dinos will invade Wollongong this January with our Jurassic January dino themed month! You will even get up close with real, live descendants of the dinosaurs! We will have everything from workshops, special events and daily activities as we focus on everything prehistoric and fossil-like!

What's a Chemistree you asked? Well, it's a Scientist's version of a Christmas tree. Our team has been working diligently and collaboratively with heaps of industry-leading scientists from across the University of Wollongong to create a range of magical and wonderous experiments to display in our Chemistree.
