Returning again after the success of our 2017 event,  Science Alive! is back in 2018, bigger and better than ever. We’ll have over 60 exhibitors providing hands-on fun that is interactive, dynamic, fun, and educational for all ages.

South Australia’s Science Alive! is one of the largest single interactive science exhibitions in Australia. The event helps to build our community’s awareness of the scope and importance of science and technology, celebrate South Australia’s successes, and inspire future generations of science and technology professionals.

Launched in 2006 as an initiative of the SA Coordinating Committee of National Science Week, it was initially held on a single day, in a modest 2,400 m2 space. Today it’s held over two full days, spans 17,000 m2 of the Adelaide Showground and attracts an audience of over 30,000, including a special preview day for local schools.

We enjoy a strong ongoing relationship with National Science Week, Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology, which of course shares our goals. Timed one week ahead, Science Alive! serves as a valuable community primer for the many official National Science Week events taking place in South Australia.

Science Alive! brings together the South Australia’s big names in science and technology: all three major universities, TAFE SA, and the SA Museum, industry leading organisations, a host of community and not for profit groups, and a large number of science-related organisations working to raise awareness of their particular part in the world of science.

There’s no better event to experience first hand all fields of science and technology – Science Alive! really is all kinds of awesome.
