Discover something new in 13 days of talks, experiments, exhibitions and free events
The Sydney Science Festival returns for the third year this August.
Presented as part of National Science Week, the festival will bring together the best Australian and international scientific minds to present an interactive program for all ages.
Highlights from this year’s program include a keynote talk from Sydney Science Festival ambassador and UTS forensic scientist, professor Shari Forbes, who works at Australia’s only human body farm; a panel of NASA experts will discuss whether or not we should relocate to Mars; and kids can extract the DNA from fruit at the Australian Museum’s Super Science Saturday.
Plus, there's an exhibition that delves into the relationship between the human voice and identity; a night of stargazing in Centennial Park; and Dr Karl and Triple J presenter Zan Rowe will present a live version of their long-running Ask Dr Karl segment at the Powerhouse Museum.
