Come along to the Port Pirie Library during National Science Week and get to grips with various exciting experiments exploring magnetism, hydrodynamics, physics and more. Then go down in history by recording your findings in our gigantic Science Journal.
In addition, Larryn Cock will be reading silly science books from the upcoming Children's Book Week short-list and the Library collection at 11am and 4pm each day.
Topics: Experimentation and scientific method; sorting; measuring; nature; chemistry and physics.
Why not linger longer in Port Pirie for SALA and Science Week, where you will learn much more riveting science fact and sci-fi future fiction at Port Pirie City Projection, bringing Science and Art together to uncover the secret depths and hidden glory of the Spencer Gulf.
Tides of Life is an exploration of the unique environments found just beneath the gulf’s waters, home to more abundant species than many other coasts. Dive into one of the most unique marine ecosystems in Australia, and learn how it came to be this way. In the distant future of ‘Bridge to Somewhere’, Port Pirie is a tourist hub with a portal to the rest of the galaxy, a holiday destination for the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit the Milky Way. Port Pirie hosts a myriad of extraordinary activities for the discerning interplanetary traveller as well as Earth-dwelling creatures. You’ll be introduced to some of these fascinating future beings during their intergalactic visit.
Come and see what they love about Port Pirie’s rich heritage and fascinating past. Grab some local tucker, bring a picnic chair or blanket, enjoy the sunset and watch the building light up.
