Event Details

Fact or Fiction

 

Is it possible to fight the dark side with a light sabre?

Could you make yourself disappear with an invisible cloak?

Can bacteria be teleported from one place to the other?

Can you tell the difference between fascinating science and science fiction?

 

Find out at Science Fact of Fiction; a big screen experience where the world of popular sci-fi film collides with cutting edge science. Fact or Fiction is a 90 minute show where the audience watch clips of classic sci-fi hits before individually voting, with hand held devices, on whether the technology featured is actual science fact or pure science fiction.  

 

Once the audience voting has been locked in, an ANSTO scientist will critique the science featured in the film and provide the answer.

 

Fact or Fiction has been designed to be highly entertaining and educational and attract kids that aren’t necessarily interested in science by providing them with a big dose of pop-culture. Science areas that are explored include Teleporting, Time Travel, Invisibility, Immortality, Light Sabres, Intelligent Metals, Terraforming Climates and Telekinesis. Age suitability is 8 years and above.
