The Science in a Van science road show experience provides you and your students with a fun, interactive and memorable way to see, teach and engage with science.

Science in a Van comes to you and sets up in your school hall. This makes for an easy, exciting and affordable way to enhance your science programme.

Is it a theatre show? Is it a science lesson? It's both!

We are based in Auckland and travel all around New Zealand. Check out the range of science shows we offer covering content from the Material World and Physical World Strands of the NZ Science Curriculum.
