Science Alive! South Australia is back on 6th-7th August 2016 and its set to be the largest science expo yet in Australia. I remember my trip to Canberra's Questacon as an adult and I actually ran out of time to explore everything! Held in conjunction with National Science Week, this year's Science Alive! will have over 70 exhibitors with a focus on interactive and hands on fun. After all, it's the best way to learn.
Designed for all ages, there will be plenty of excitement of learning, discovering and experimenting. Whether your interest is in technology, engineering, maths, nature, astronomy, food or health there will be something for you. There will also be FOUR stages presenting continuous science and animal shows, astronomy sessions in inflatable planetariums, robotics workshops and over 70 booths with hands on activities. Find out how science is at the core of things as we know it.
The expo will be held at The Adelaide Showground and is expected to attract over 30,000 people so make sure you buy your tickets early. Children under 18 get FREE entry while adults pay $20 per person at the door or $15 online. It is recommended that families allow at least three hours for a visit as there is so much to see and do.
The event runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturday 6th August and Sunday 7th August in the Goyder and Jubilee Pavilions at the Adelaide Showground. Entry is via the Ridley gates on Goodwood Road or via the western doors of Jubilee Pavilion.
