Budding Scientists was created in 2015 to provide Central Coast’s children the opportunity to discover, explore and learn about the world around them through fun and exciting hands-on science experiences.

Young children have a natural curiosity – this is evident in any playground or classroom where we can see even the littlest kids touching, shaking, peering, crunching, smelling, listening and even tasting whatever they can get their hands on!

Budding Scientists was founded on the vision that, given the opportunity for engagement (and a little direction!), children will embrace the mysteries of the unknown with enthusiasm and confidence, and will grow into science literate students who will have an appreciation for science and the role it plays in the real world.
