Our signature interactive experiences have featured at events around the world:

 

Kids Dig
Web dig

Kids Dig is a simulated archaeological dig experience where visitors assume the role of scientist, archaeologist or other investigative specialty. Prior to entry onto the site, participants are given an induction about working safety on site and how to work systematically in carefully excavating objects (finds) from the site.

Authentic tools and equipment are available for each participant to excavate and retrieve objects. They then move to the ‘ID Tent’ to investigate their finds and make more detailed records (measurements and other key characteristics) of their objects on the Finds Records Sheets and making reference to the on-site field notes and museum.

The group will come together for a final review, describing some of their finds. We propose some hypothesis about human habitation of the site based on the evidence found and recorded.

A variety of 'back-stories' can be created for the site, and artefacts selected to reflect the possibility of an ancient people, place or activity. From pre-historic foundries to early settlements, we taylor Kids Dig to the interests of the venue.

NEW: Kids Dino Dig is our paleontological experinece - same ideas archaeology, but with GIANT BONES, cranes and other ancient fossils.

Learning outcomes:

  • Archaeology is a science involving the systematic collection, classification, testing and comparing materials as evidence for past human activity, culture and history.
  • Human ingenuity is not a new phenomenon; there is evidence of great science and technologies going back 5000 years and longer.
  • Modern scientific techniques help us understand the past as well as providing solutions to current and future needs.

Build It
Build It hero

Build It is a simulated house construction experience where participants assume the role of architect, interior designer, brick layer, plumber, paver and other professions and trades involved in house construction. Entering via the site office where site safety induction occurs; all participants don safety vest, hard hats and grab their tools before getting to work.

Participants can make use of the Architects and Interior Design workstations – explore alternative house plans and design elements with magnetic vinyl cutouts of walls, floors, plumbing, fixtures and fittings are applied to the floor plan. This can also be replicated electronically with Tablets.

Learning outcomes:

  • House construction relies on a number of STEM-related professions and trades.
  • Architects rely on physical science and engineering to ensure houses are safe and provide long-term shelter.
  • Designers rely on their understanding of human psychology and materials.
  • Specific trades need STEM knowledge; bricklayers understand forces and plumbers know about fluid dynamics.

HMAS Discovcery is a journey of discovery experience. This experience can be produced as a 18th Century exploration sloop, or modern research & rescure ship, there's the Space Ship edition as well as the Mars explorer. Visit one of our ship experiences at theDiscovery Space.  

Tour of the Tummy
tummyUSF

A giant stomach to explore and learn about the mechanics and chemisty of digestions. This completely immersive experience takes visitors on a journery from outside to inside, and then back out again! Complete with genuine sound effects, this experience can be themed to meet variety of interests - inside people, or another animal (living or extinct), or even some form of alien life. Learn about healthy options, or simply explore, this is an exiting experience that can be adpated to suit each venue. Try one of our tummy experiences at theDiscovery Space.
