Event description

The future is bright! And so are the lights. Explore light and colours in this fun hands-on program designed to learn all about waves and the cool stuff they do. Investigate the visible light spectrum, including colour addition and subtraction, ultraviolet light and more. We explore illusions, flipbooks and lots of amazing optics that will trick your eyes and muddle your brain. 

Children should wear old clothes and bring a hat, sunscreen, water bottle and snack (no peanuts).

Age: Grades K to 6
Bookings essential

This program can be paired with the morning Marble Run Madness workshop to make a full day of fun! Fizzics Education will provide a supervised lunch break (BYO lunch) from 12 noon to 1 pm and will transition your child to the afternoon activity.

This program is presented by Fizzics Education as part of the Centennial Parklands holiday programs. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring to our holiday science programs

  • Morning tea, lunch & afternoon tea as required. Don't rely on a shop being nearby.
  • A hat
  • A water bottle
  • Wear old clothes
  • Any medications (your child must be able to self-medicate)
  • NB: No peanuts allowed on-site


We take anaphylaxis seriously. Any child that requires an EpiPen must bring a minimum of one EpiPen on the day in association with the ASCIA Guidelines. Please give all the information about the allergic condition to our presenters. For the safety of your child, we cannot have them on-site without their prescribed EpiPen.

Sign in & Out

  • A Parent or Guardian is required to sign the child in upon arrival and then sign them out when picking them up after the workshop.
  • An emergency contact number is needed, as well as the name and phone number of the person picking up your child.
  • Please arrive on time for the program commencement and conclusion.

Where is the program being held?

Centennial Park is based on one-way streets. It is easiest to approach Dickens Drive from the Lang Road entrance of the park on the northwestern side. Continue along Dickens Drive past Loch Avenue and the centre will be on your left just before the bridge. Park your car on the street and walk 150m from the road and you’ll find us there in the WILD PLAY Discovery Centre!

My child is too young, can they attend with their older sibling?

No, unfortunately. The minimum age of each program is set to ensure that children attending have the mathematical and problem-solving skills to successfully program the robots and keep up with the pace of the program. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
