Our team conducted an in-depth analysis of the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation's (CSIRO) Holiday Science Activities in Melbourne, Australia. We obtained data through parental surveys before the activities; observations of the children during the activities; telephone interviews with parents after the completion of the activities; observations and interviews with program directors of other holiday programs around Melbourne; and interviews with the CSIRO staff. We concluded that the programs satisfied both parents and children by exciting science interest in children; however, we also identified possible improvements for future programs.
