2017 Australian Synchrotron Open Day

The LabRats worked shoulder-to-shoulder with the big scientists from the Australian Synchrotron to educate and entertain over 4000 members of the public.

What an invaluable opportunity for our young members to be able to share their passion with people from all walks of life!

They make our adventures possible

2015 Carnival of the Curious

In November 2015, the LabRats collaborated with the Dandenong Library to organise a science carnival with the aim of reaching out to children who are less exposed to science opportunities.

How rewarding it was for all of us who got to share our passion for learning!

2016 and 2017 Science at the Park 

To celebrate the National Science Week in August, the LabRats joined in the fun with PrimeSCI! at the Coolart Wetlands to showcase the beauty of our natural world.

It was so much bush-fun as we helped to conduct all sorts of nature-related activities including a bird watch, observing the geology around the wetlands, observing creepy crawlies from the waters, and finding out secrets that beans keep. ​

2018 Spooky Science Carnival

The LabRats and the Dandenong Library had so much fun organising the last science carnival in 2015 that we decided to do it again!

This kids-teach-kids program has proven to be a great hit yet again - giving the Dandenong community a chance to play and our LabRats members the special opportunity to share and to serve. 


Science Club


In 2015, the LabRats launched the 'Kids-Teaching-Kids' initative where we get to share our love for learning with the greater community. The goal of program is two-fold:

1. Paying it forward

We are grateful recipients of the goodwill of our stakeholders and researchers who generously contribute their time and expertise to mentor our members. By sharing what we have learnt with other kids, we aim to further expand the influence of our stakeholders and researchers to make this world a better one.

2. Building Confidence and Communication

By interacting with the general public, and winning other kids over with lots of exciting activities, our members learn to communicate more effectively, and gain precious confidence through the process.

Did someone mention FUN???!!
