S.T.E.M. Quiz


As a Discover Primary Science and Maths Centre, Lismore Heritage Centre has 20 years of experience in the Education Sector.

Our new S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Trail includes 10 stations of different topics. Children are given a questionnaire to fill in as they visit each station and there are questions at each station to keep them scratching their heads and hopefully engaging more at home and school with each topic.

When the S.T.E.M. quiz is completed, they receive a prize, and the best part of all is it is completely free.

The S.T.E.M. quiz takes around half an hour to complete and we suggest parents browse our shop, take in a coffee in the Courthouse Cafe or view our prize winning audio visual while they wait for their little Einstein’s to complete the course.
