Science on the GO! has a mind-blowing calendar of annual events, science shows, lab experiences and workshops.

Science on the GO! aims to bring dynamic and engaging science shows and workshops to your school and classroom. Our lab experiences for senior students in Year 10–12 are held on campus, providing staff and students access to the innovative facilities, resources and expertise of Griffith University.

From science and engineering challenges, to cutting-edge STEM conferences, we offer opportunities for Years 5–12 students and their teachers to experience University-inspired STEM in unique, hands-on, out-of-classroom scenarios.

Culminating in National Science Week each year are some of our signature events, including the Science Trivia Challenge, Pop-up Science Centre and Schools Science Competition.
