Part of Sydney Science Festival in National Science Week, The Innovation Games is a free event full of new ways to taste, touch and see science and technology in ACTION!

Head to the Olympic Cauldron and hit the pump track with your scooter, skateboard or BMX. Generate energy whilst you’re burning some off. Catch some of the X Games extreme sport stars shredding their stuff on the half-pipe. Get the low down on drones, take-off on our flying simulators or talk with a Mars Robotics Expert from the USA.

Don’t miss the opportunity to kick the physics out of a footy or follow the nature discovery trail to save some endangered native species. Sydney Olympic Park will again be buzzing with interactive displays, live stage shows, games, gadgets, film and food. Test your skills in family-friendly physical and mental challenges and maybe see yourself up on the big screen. Pat something spikey or slimy or scaly….. or tame a coffee and relax whilst others explore. Find out why studies in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) can lead to the coolest jobs around.

So if you are coming out to cheer on Australia in Bledisloe Cup Rugby, or GWS Giants vs Swans AFL, or just hanging out at the Park for a sunny Saturday, race over to The Innovation Games and ramp- up your science and tech knowledge. There are heaps of fun things and freebies to be found on the day.
