Given the increasing concern about the spread of COVID-19 in the community, particularly with winter flu season approaching, we have been informed to cancel any Kickstart workshop bookings until and including October 2020.
This includes the cancellation of any Kickstart workshops (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) from March until October inclusive, as well as the regional tour Kickstart on the Road – Orange.
We are working to develop alternative methods of workshop delivery and online resources. If you would like to be updated about the availability of our programs, you can sign-up to our Science Alliance Newsletter.
If you have any queries regarding Kickstart workshops or Kickstart on the Road, please contact email@example.com.
Designed to meet the demand expressed by science teachers in response to changes to the NSW HSC Science syllabus, these workshops cover experiments that require equipment or expertise in areas that many schools may not be able to provide.
Duration: All workshops run for 2.5 hours
Class size: Minimum class size of 15 students for Biology and Chemistry. Physics has a minimum of 4 students. If your class size is smaller than this, please contact us.
Cost: $29.70/student (inc GST)

Physics: Universe to Atom
Registration: Please email your contact details, number of students, workshop dates to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our physics workshops cover many points of the HSC syllabus overseen by your own dynamic tutor, all in a real physics lab in the historic Physics Building at the University of Sydney.
The flexibility of our “Combination of Modules” choice lets you mix-and-match up to 5 of our experiments to make your Kickstart workshop as engaging and relevant as possible.
In our chemistry workshops students will undertake many hands-on experiments using analytical instruments and chemicals not readily available to high schools.
Enhance the HSC biology syllabus with a workshop that is totally hands-on and features real specimens that the students can see and touch - living plants and animals, preserved museum specimens and fresh tissue for dissection.
No, all workshop materials will be provided. Please have your students bring a pen and a calculator.
Most school groups come on the train - it's a 30 minute walk from Redfern Station, and 5-10 minutes walk from City Rd. Also many buses pass the University along Parramatta Rd or City Rd. From the Parramatta Rd bus stop it is a 5 minute walk. See the Public Transport section of the University website for more information.
