Over three days (16-18th August), primary schools are invited to attend the Indigenous Science Experience at Redfern Community Centre. These days are a celebration of Indigenous and Western science and highlight the relevance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to our everyday lives.

This event will include a wide range of hands-on, interactive science activities presented by Indigenous Elders and youth as well as science academics/researchers, community groups, and science outreach providers.

Activities will include: Yarning with Elders on bush foods and medicines, maths puzzles, neural knitting, making traditional Aboriginal tools, physics activities, and much more!

The days will feature secondary student leaders from regional areas (northern NSW and Riverina) and Western Sydney who are taking part in the National Indigenous Science Education Program. They will demonstrate a range of science activities to the primary school students.

This event is organised by the National Indigenous Science Education Program, Macquarie University, and hosted by Redfern Community Centre. It would not be possible without the support of Inspiring Australia and the City of Sydney.

Bookings are required, space is limited.
