What does the future of our Earth look like? Can we make a difference? Maybe moving to Mars is the answer? Come to Science in ACTion to get hands on with STEM and explore the science all around you.

Learn about the future – of ecosystems, technology, energy, and of the Earth. Then discover secrets of the past from an archaeologist or forensic scientist.

Walk inside a virtual plant cell, or shudder when you hear about the parasites you might’ve picked up on your holiday.

Meet scientists who help to conserve iconic Australian plants and animals, and learn how renewable energies can protect the earth’s climate.

Challenge yourself to a puzzle, peer down a microscope, or put on a lab coat and get messy with some slime. Be inspired by Science in ACTion.

Free entry, no bookings required!
