The Science of Sustainability featuring Questacon's Earth quest

Months of planning and anticipation is about to come to fruition as time stands still for Science Week. One week with two weekends means several super-hands-on science sessions are available for all the community near and far to attend on 12-13 August and 19-20 August, or perhaps during the week.

What will be on show?

  • 15 Earth Quest interactive exhibits from Questacon will spark an interest from Outer Space to Inner Earth. 
  • A mini festival of the best short science films from Scinema - (no popcorn though). 
  • Some local sensory exhibits around our feathered and furry friends with nestboxes built by the Toronto Men’s Shed 
  • An observation trail in the bush out the back to wander along and discover some field science and the impacts of fire on garden escapes. 
Over 400 students have booked in for the mid-week sessions, which is very exciting including two sessions with the Hunter Home Educators-Schoolers. Some mid week 9am sessions are still available.

Whilst bookings aren’t essential for the weekends, if we do get overwhelmed with enthusiasm those with a ticket will get in and numbers will have to be regulated. If you’d like to lend a hand contact us.

Bookings can be made through Eventbrite- The Science of Sustainability – Questacon’s Earth Quest exhibits-Community.
