STEM Stations (for Schools)

Take a tour of TWRM, stopping at our National Science Week STEM Stations.

Have fun learning with free, hands-on engineering activities offered to visiting schools during National Science Week.

Explore principles of Science, Maths, Engineering and Technology as you take up each challenge by constructing, racing, propelling, testing and problem solving.

Station 1) Lift off!
Can you design an aircraft to a hover in our wind tunnel?

Station 2) Giant Catapult
Do you have a licence to launch?

Station 3) Need for speed
Will you cross the line first?

Session Times

Monday 13, Tuesday 14, Thursday 16 and Friday 17 August, 2018

Hourly sessions 10:00am, 11:30am to 1:00pm

The Museum forecourt


Lift off!

Using recycled everyday objects, design and test the best shape and weight for suspended flight.

Students use a wind tunnel to engineer aircraft that defy gravity.

Giant Catapult

Students provide the energy for this mechanism. Predict which projectile will go the distance and adjust your trajectory to hit the targets.

Need for speed

Build your own electric car. Evaluate which design features will make it reach the finish line fastest.

Will your Team’s design make it past the heats (or will you make the cheering squad, instead)?

Museum Entry

Entry to the Museum is FREE for Queensland Schools during Term time. Supervising adults free within recommended ratios.

STEM challenges are free and bookings are essential.
