Learn STEM skills & have fun at TwistED Science, Moorabbin

TwistED Science is an award-winning, science-based indoor play centre that aims to help you and your children to be curious, to create, and most importantly to connect.

The interactive play space encourages hands-on participation in their jam-packed STEM play stations. Kids can build, engineer, compose and create while they make fantastic flying machines, stop motion animation videos, shoot a rocket and much more!

Twisted Science Moorabbin is the second outpost of the very popular Twisted Science Echuca.

Twisted Science

Experience a new way to play at TwistED Science as they have a no-instruction policy. This means you and your child have the freedom to discover and be as creative as you like.

All exhibits can be enjoyed at an age or ability and everyone can touch, explore, and get active with each exhibit. I see plenty of parents get involved too!

If you do get stuck or reach a point where you really need help, don’t worry! The friendly staff are there to give you a hand by providing instructions as needed.

The site is split up into three areas: Blue, Green and Tangerine, and your general admission allows you to move back of forth between zones as you wish during your 3.5 hour session.

Tangerine is a no big kids zone as it’s a cosy and specially designed private area for pre-school children under 5.

Within the Tangerine area there is another separate area for babies and toddlers that are 2 and under.

The Snack Lab is a great place for parents to take a break or some time out and enjoy a takeaway coffee without having to worry about being so far from their kids. You can also bring your own snacks to enjoy at the tables and chairs. Most playzone areas are visible from the Snack Lab level. 

And if your phone battery needs a recharge, jump on a bike and create electrical energy for your phone!

Other child-friendly facilities include a well-equipped parents room and dedicated pram parking area.

Note at the moment they do not currently have air-conditioning in the play zone – only in the cafe, shop and reception. They have big fans set up when we visit but on really hot days I recommend booking the morning session. 

The space is spotless throughout, with staff resetting activities periodically. No food is allowed in the play zone, just water bottles.

Science Party Melbourne

You can book a kids science party at Twisted Science Moorabbin (and Echuca) which includes presenters who present science facts in a fun way. 

Twisted Science px

Playzone parties run for 2 hours and costs $36 per child with a minimum of 10 people. You can also upgrade to a ‘Lab Party’ which includes 2 hours in the play zone plus a take-home science experiment for $49 per child and a minimum of 10 guests.

Both parties also feature your own designated party host, a private room for the duration, access to the playzone (blue and green), and a snack of popcorn (popped straight from the cob!) and fruit juice (or water).

Twisted Science px

Twisted Science also offers travelling science parties where presenters can come to your home, park or venue. There’s a choice of various themes, from bubbles to slime. 

The Alpha science party is 60 minutes long and costs $395 for up to 20 children and $15/head for additional guests. The Mega science party is 90 minutes long because there are two experiments; price on application. 

For all parties you can add a ‘Lab Rat’ party bag for $9.95 each. Each party bag is packed full of sciencey goodness!  

While a science birthday party is sure to be a hit, you can also book a science kids party for kindergarten visits, bar mitzvahs, christenings, family days and holiday programs.

Science Incursions Melbourne

The team at TwistED science can come to your school for science shows, curriculum-based workshops and hands-on sessions just for fun.

Their learning workshops are based on ACARA curriculum codes.

They even offer online science incursions that are live-streamed so that kids can watch remotely while following along with the experiments with packs that are posted out to teachers/classrooms.
