Word Up
World Science Festival Brisbane 2018

World Science Festival (WSF) was founded in New York in 2008, with the initiative to basically take the science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and performing art venues of the world, YO!. Fast forward to 2018, World Science Festival Brisbane 2018 program is presented to you by the Queensland Museum Network. Be prepared for a five-day festival delivered in vibrant spaces extending from Brisbane to regional centres in Queensland.

The Brisbane program will be executed for its third time running from March 21 -25th 2018. Here are my recommendations on why you should attend.
