For regional tours we accept half or full-day bookings only.  We have introduced a 90 minute Stage 6 ‘Investigating Science’ session where students undertake experiments using EEGs. This will involve the NeuroSky MindWave only and is completely different to our stage Stage 6 Biology/Working Scientifically sessions.

Our Stage 6 Biology (from term 4 2018) sessions focus on infectious and non-infectious disease (NESA modules 7 and 8) while also looking at inheritable diseases of the brain (module 5).

We understand these dates may not suit your school. We can do regional visits if we have 3 x days worth of bookings so please talk to us about other possibilities.
These are the year groups that we would be presenting and giving the experience to.
This is the type of visit you'd want from us. For regional visits we do half days comprising 2 x sessions ($470) or a full day where we can present up to five sessions ($790). An extra 'Brain Control' session where students just use our equipment following a presentation is counted as one session. Our Investigating Science/Working Scientifically research sessions are 90-120 minutes for students + an hour set-up. The cost for this is $380.
