"It was a great show and the children were engaged from start to finish. The children love Dr Joe and love exploring science." Jodie, Currimundi Childcare.
"Though the program we are finding that it opens the children's minds and understanding science in the real world by using everyday objects. Children are taking these experiences to their families and we are having lots of discussions around science and what it means to them. We are seeing more children challenging themselves and exploring different mediums and letting them take charge and challenge themselves to open their enjoyment of science." De'Arne – Perfect Start Birkdale
"Thanks Dr Joe! Our children (2.5 to 5 yrs) were all so engaged with your show and absolutely loved exploring all of your activities!" Bulimba child care 2013
Having had Dr Joe Science Show visit our 4 year old Kindergarten group for the last 2 years, we booked a series of science sessions this year and we have not been disappointed. As well as igniting curiosity in a major way in our kindy play, the science bug is spreading through our families. After Dr Joe’s first visit, delighted parents reported how excited their children were to show off and explain their take home science toy. The sessions just keep giving us the “wow” factor and impressing us with real science with young children. Throughout the demonstration part of the show the children (and adults) are always thoroughly engaged and there is plenty of interaction. Dr Joe speaks to the children in a register that they understand, prompts them to question what is happening and why, and introduces new vocabulary and new ideas.
The children are enthralled by the “toys” they get to explore in the hands-on part of the show- toys such as a crane, levers and gears, air powered rockets, racing dinosaurs… Dr Joe packs a lot into his big van and he packs a lot into his shows.
I have no doubt that these science experiences will leave a lasting impression on our children and have no hesitation in recommending Dr Joe to other early childhood educators.

During our most popular show 'Kindy Science', children have the opportunity to experience just how much fun real science can be. They get to do so much more than just experience some amazing science demonstrations, but are also challenged with new vocabulary, and stretch their imaginations to help them understand the world in ways that go beyond their senses. (They also get to dress up like a real scientist, which doesn't mean they need a white coat!!!)
Have some fun, and see how easy it is to teach top quality science in any authentic early childhood curriculum.
Everything is made of chemicals, what matters is that we treat them right - so beware! Explore some googy goos and oozy ooze! Try out the four states of matter - solid, liquid, gasses and plasma!
(Best performed indoors with hard floors. Children are advised to bring a towel or change of clothes to this show. This show includes fire which some children will choose to freak out about. Please give them plenty of warning and have then near adults to prevent tears from spreading!)
the magic of science
A funtastic program that has children (and grownups) thinking hard about how they think the world works! Outwit our Dr Joe the magician as he takes you on a magical journey of mystery, science and magic! This show blends performance based magic and science in order to inspire students to generate theories and test their own ideas. This is a lighthearted show that’s great for a good laugh!
"The show was great, I loved the vest." Maddy. DCSS.
"Love the show I want you to come back to our school! "Gemma.
(This is a more fun-focused programs great for one off presentations or end of year celebrations. For those so concerned, the magic is very transparent and children are encouraged to figure it out, rather than being left with enigma. The use of magic in teaching is intended to inspire students to appreciate the 'magic' all around us every day.)
