More than a market, the Queen Victoria Market often plays host to some fun and spectacular events. With their Living Science at the Market day coming up on Sunday 21st August, this is one of those days you will not want to miss.
At the Living Science at the Market event, patrons can enjoy lots of interactive and demonstrative science-based fun. Starting at 10am, scientists and cooks will explore the relationship between food, science, innovation, technology and the environment. Then everyone is welcome to take part in one of the hands-on activities, which will include making your own sherbet and extracting DNA from fruit and more.
While you're at the market watch a live cooking demonstration. A special bonus will be the tastings – a popular one being the Science of Chocolate samples.
A special guest appearing on the day will be Amy Shira Teitel, an International Space Historian. Amy will be presenting the planets in an entirely new way that you've never seen before.
This is the 8th Living Science at the Market event, held in conjunction with the National Science Week. This event is free and suitable for all ages.
The Queen Victoria Market is open every day except Monday at the corner of Elizabeth and Victoria Streets, Melbourne. You can find out more about the market by following the link here to the website.
