Mirror Mirror on the wall

22-64 McKinnon Drive, Yarrabilba, QLD, 4207, 17 August, 4pm-7pm

17 Aug

An evening designed to allow you to explore the wonders of science. This years theme- glass and mirrors. Wander through classrooms filled with challenges- create the longest fibre optic fibre, use a laser cutter to cut your own key chains, use microscopes to see things too small for the human eye and loads more. Each classroom is set up to show case each of the sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) along with technology and robotics. So wonder through each of the rooms, talk to each of our teachers who each have a passion in each of these fields, you may even discover something new. Once you’ve finished exploring each of the classrooms, go outside and meet some of the locals in the glass and mirror business. Learn to make and use telescopes to see the stars with the Scenic Rim Astronomy Association, play laser tag across our oval with Red Scorpion Mobile Laser Tag, make your way through our laser obstacle course Mission Impossible style, participate in some workshops (glass themed of course- learn how to make your own stain glass items, make your own recycled glass jewellery) and loads more. Don’t forget to get a photo to remember the night with our mirror photo booth by Photos in a Booth. Then finish off the night with some great food and enjoy our light and laser show.
