Sydney is a city of innovation, entrepreneurs and incredible scientific and technological achievement—an aspirational city with world-class universities and research institutions and award-winning researchers, whose youthful enthusiasm toward scientific discovery is set against a historic culture of Indigenous knowledge.
Sydney Science Festival celebrates and showcases Sydney’s diverse and multidisciplinary science and innovation community to inspire a sense of city-wide pride, increase Sydneysiders’ appreciation and recognition of science, and motivate young people to study and practice science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).
From 10-20 August 2017, the Festival will encourage people of all ages and knowledge levels to discover, discuss and debate science through a program of talks by world-leading researchers, hands-on workshops, exhibitions and events for family exploring all areas of STEAM. The Festival brings together a diverse group of research institutions, museums, universities, industry, and community to discover, discuss and debate science at venues across Sydney and Western Sydney.
Part of National Science Week, Sydney Science Festival is produced by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and Australian Museum in partnership with Inspiring Australia.
