The program includes four different themed science experiment workshops and end of National Science Week virtual showcase. Each experiment theme will have focused activities for four cohorts Prep-Year 2, Year 3-4 and Year 5-6 and the general community.

The content will be based on the Australian Curriculum Design and Technologies: Food and Fibre production. CQUniversity will create an online platform for schools and community to access and upload content.

The focus of the workshops will be Bundaberg food production, Gladstone fisheries industry, Rockhampton beef industry and Mackay sugar production.

Schools and community groups will receive the resources necessary for each experiment. This may include downloadable material as well as equipment to conduct the experiments in the classroom or home.
