School programs and resources

Sleepovers are available at Scienceworks for groups of between 20 and 60 primary-age students. We offer a Planetarium show and activities on the night of your sleepover, space to roll out your sleeping bag, supper, breakfast and overnight security.

Sleepover programs begin at 7.00pm so have your evening meal beforehand. After an exclusive exhibition viewing (outside of normal visiting hours) the next morning you depart Scienceworks by 9.45am or you can stay on and book another program. Staying on for another program the next morning incurs additional costs.

Please note: New Terms and Conditions apply.

For any dietary or special needs please check with our Sleepover coordinator.
