Bear-Ometer of Positivity by Edison Chen

There’s a fun new arts and science festival taking place in Western Sydney Parklands

For five bucks entry fee, you’ll get to drop in on a bunch of kids’ activities like science experiments and explore a large outdoor art exhibition.

The aim of CoLABS is to show how art and science can work together to inspire the next generation in STEM subjects. Featured artworks include a Bear-Ometer of Positivity by Edison Chen. The four-metre-tall bear can be controlled with your Twitter account.

There’s also an interactive sound garden, a robotic percussion ensemble and the chance to play noughts and crosses with a computer. While you’re there explore a structure of 1,700 bread crates that represent the global wealth pyramid.
