Science Alive! is the largest, single, interactive, mobile science exhibition in Australia. It helps to build our community's awareness of the scope and importance of science and technology in our everyday lives, celebrating South Australia's successes and inspiring future generations of science and technology professionals.
Science Alive! was launched in 2006 by the SA Coordinating Committee of National Science Week as a single day event in a modest 2,400 m2 space. Over 16 years it has grown into a suite of 3 separate events held over 3 days in over 16,000 m2 at the Adelaide Showground. It is held in the week leading up to National Science Week in August each year.
Science Alive! is held in the Jubillee and Goyder Pavilions.
