Super Science Saturday 2017
Sat. 12 August 2017, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm AEST
The 12th August will be an extraordinary day out for the entire family when the Australian Museum opens its doors and brings science to life for everyone!
With live animal shows, face-painting, hands-on experiments and lectures, there are events/programs that will appeal to the littlies, teenagers and the parents. Super Science Saturday is all about showcasing the science behind one of Sydney's most loved institutions.
Watch science in action with the ‘Street Science’ Show. Discover what’s rumbling beneath the earth’s crust with ‘Volcanoes, eruptions and more’. Learn more about the relationship between science and culture with ‘Aboriginal Bush Food and Medicine’. Hold a lizard, extract DNA from fruit, and come and meet Winny, our resident terror toddler dinosaur! At an event with this much science, her curiosity is bound to get the better of her.
Come along and see how science can be found in the most unexpected and amazing ways.
