Description

What:

A sustainably super hands-on science session is coming to Coal Point’s Progress Hall. The science extravaganza will include 16 hands-on exhibits as well as an observation trail looking at the impacts of fire on the local bushland as part of the Threatened Species Last Stand on the Coal Point Peninsula project.

Everyone is invited to experience Questacon’s Earth Quest Travelling Exhibition during Science Week from August 12 - 20.

There are seven (7) community sessions available over two weekends 12-13 Aug and 19-20 Aug , morning and afternoon.

Why

To appreciate and understand environmental sustainability there are basic scientific concepts that need to be understood. The Earth Quest travelling exhibition allows for this foundational science to be experienced in a hands-on and interactive manner within the framework of Science Week’s Future Earth theme.
