Curtains close on holidays

THE FINAL day of the Maranoa Regional Council's school holiday program was an eclectic mix of scientific fun and education.

Held in the Hibernian hall, children of all ages got to learn all about science as part of the Street Science show run by fully qualified science educator Steve Liddell.

Mr Liddell has a BA in Applied Science and his Street Science show offers a range of professional, well-designed workshops and stage shows to complement the National Curriculum.

Street Science regularly services major cities and regional districts around Queensland.

Children were shown how different scientific elements react with water which came in the form of a fun putty mixture that was able to be inflated into a bubble. They were also taught the properties of water and how environmental changes alters its form.

Mr Liddell's engaging manner and knowledge of science kept the children entertained and all of them were able to take home their experiments.
