Business Overview

The Discovery Science and Technology Centre Bendigo inspires and nurtures scientific curiosity.

Discovery sees over 30,000 visitors a year with a focus on engaging children aged 0-12 and their families in hands-on, fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Schools and kindergartens come to Discovery for curriculum-based workshops, to watch a planetarium show, have a sleepover, and to explore the centre and get hands-on with the STEM learning experience.

Discovery staff go out to schools with incursions, teacher professional development sessions and through running online science workshops.

Families come to Discovery to explore and have fun with over 100 different hands-on science exhibits and to test themselves on the 7 m vertical slide. During school holidays there are workshops, science shows and planetarium shows regularly through-out the day and on weekends. Discovery plays host to birthday parties and community events. Offering venue hire, meeting spaces and historical building tours, Discovery really is a centre for the whole community.

Discovery aims to become Australia’s leading regional hub for STEM education in early and primary school years. Discovery aims to launch our young people on diverse, rewarding STEM pathways and careers by engaging the curiosity and boosting the confidence of young children, their families and community to explore STEM in our centre’s relatable, uniquely regional context.

We have strong foundations upon which to build our vision, having provided STEM education and tourism activities in the Bendigo region for 25 years. We have an expert and dedicated core team, supported by a diverse, experienced Board of Directors and a passionate pool of casual staff and volunteers.
