The annual World Science Festival Brisbane returns in 2020 from 25-29 March 2020 to inspire, educate and inform us all about the wonderful, innovative world of science and technology.
Presented by the Queensland Museum, this world-class event marks Australia's biggest science festival.
Having been founded by American mathematician and Professor Brian Greene, the World Science Festival has been held in New York for over a decade to " gather great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows people to engage with scientific discoveries" and has drawn over two million visitors plus many more online.
The Queensland Museum Network has secured the exclusive licence to host the World Science Festival in the Asia Pacific from 2016-21.
If you are in Brisbane, head to Brisbane's Cultural Precinct to join in the fun.
The accessible and inclusive program takes science out of the lab and into the streets so that everyone can talk about issues like astronomy, mathematics, weather and the natural world.
The festival includes 130 science-focused hands-on family-friendly activities across the state with films, musical performances, educational presentations including Dr Matt Agnew and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki . (Please note that some sessions are ticketed events).
