Victoria University Professor Science Troupe heads to Greater Shepparton

Victoria University’s Professor Science Troupe make their way to Greater Shepparton primary schools in late July, early August.

The Science Troupe will showcase over 20 amazing science demonstrations where all rules are broken. Hands will be set on fire, combustion reactions will rock assembly halls, water coolers will become subversive volcanoes and soap explosions will clean away any preconceptions of science. This is raw science, science to savour and a sight to see.

The Professor Science Troupe stage show is presented free to primary and secondary schools and is a Victoria University outreach initiative run and made up of Foundation Studies students from the College of Engineering and Science. The aim of the show is to engage the community with science and to spark and maintain student’s interest in science and in the art of discovery.
