We’re on the case this school holidays to unlock a range of new investigative skills. Learn about forensic science as you work together to piece together the evidence.
Each workshop will involve building on investigative skills such as learning how to identify, collect, interpret and analyse different kinds of clues and evidence. Apply scientific principles to a real world scenario and learn about fingerprinting, DNA and more.
When: Tuesday, July 3 from 10.30am to 11.30am for ages 6 to 9. Another workshop will be held from 1pm to 2pm for ages 10 to 13. Bookings and enquiries: wodongalibrary.com.au. Cost: Free.
Drop a line, a fishing line at the Felltimber Community Centre lake

A free barbecue lunch and drinks will be provided along with workshops to teach you how to fish.
BYO fishing gear if possible, there will be some available to borrow on the day. Fishing licenses not required. Funded by Fisheries Victoria.
A comedic take on creation
A show for older children.
Former teenage Christian and theatrical clown weirdo, Kyle Walmsley, uses the biblical creation story as an allegory for understanding the confusing and troubling times we live in.
In His Image is a twisted, darkly comedic look at Chapter 1 of history’s best selling book, and it’s coming to The Cube Wodonga from July 12 to 14.
This show is recommended for ages 16 and over.
In this irreverent, absurd and largely inappropriate show, Kyle takes you down the live theatre version of a YouTube rabbit hole.
Winner of the 2017 Darwin Fringe Festival Award for Best Theatre, Kyle Walmsley is a performer and teacher of clown and theatre.
Whether you’re a fan of Jesus or Kyle, you’re going to have lots to think about after seeing this show.
