Playspace for the 0 - 5 year olds at Scienceworks

Although it is sad to see Scienceworks say goodbye to their much-loved Nitty Gritty Super City, there's a reason to be excited by the change.

Melbourne's world-renowned science museum has announced the addition of a brand new playground.

Ground Up: Building Big Ideas Together


You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April 2019 at Fitzroy Gardens.
A STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) play space dedicated to the 0 to 5 year-olds is a $2.5million interactive exhibition. Ground Up: Building Big Ideas Together is an environment to challenge all senses, with Tinkering Zone for tots to 3 year-olds and a Collaborative Zone designed for 3 to 5 year-olds.



Toddlers can try their hands at open-ended activities such as creating contraptions to fly in wind tubes, stacking and sorting custom-made blocks on a colourful light table, and practicing foundational coding skills such as sequencing and critical thinking. The play area also sees the installation of a light-up switch wall to help develop fine motor skills and logical thinking.

The 3 to 5 year-olds are challenged in the Collaborative Zone to use communication and social skills to solve problems. Pre-schoolers have access to large-scale construction and simple machinery and will be encouraged to work together.

In addition to Ground Up: Building Big Ideas Together , a $3.75 million immersive permanent exhibition is underway to educate secondary school age and beyond. This exhibition will engage young adults in science through revealing the invisible world of wave forms.

Inspire your children's minds at Scienceworks' new STEM playground Ground Up: Building Big Ideas Together.
