About this event

Observe our closest star with a purpose-build solar telescope, jump into Curtin Universities pop-up science lab and take part in hands on experiments >>> think: lab coats, laser mazes, DIY kaleidoscopes, forensic glass and UV lights...

Make your own 'Pate de Verre' glass bowl with Denise Pepper, speak to scientists and astrophysicists at the Astro 3D stall...

Help build a giant marble run, hear about how artists make with glass and see their wares...

Create a baby image of the universe when the first stars and galaxies formed, try your hand at a big ol’ game of marbles...

Enjoy the BBQ and learn about the many ways this wondrous material shapes our world!
