WSFQ Gladstone Schools Day is designed to engage students in stimulating and inspiring experiences that showcase careers in STEM, including discussions with scientists, hands-on activities and exciting science shows.
This year students will rotate through Dr Karl’s awe-inspiring science show, and then spend some self-led time exploring the City Of Science, giving them access to hands-on science activities, real life scientists, and fascinating displays.
