12 August will be an extraordinary day out for the entire family when the Australian Museum opens its doors and brings science to life for everyone! With live animal shows, face-painting, hands-on experiments and lectures, there are events and programs that will appeal to the littlies, teenagers and parents. Super Science Saturday is all about showcasing the science behind one of Sydney’s most loved institutions.
Watch science in action with the ‘Street Science’ Show. Discover what’s rumbling beneath the earth’s crust with ‘Volcanoes, eruptions and more’. Learn more about the relationship between science and culture with ‘Aboriginal Bush Food and Medicine’. Find out what the future holds in the Robot Room. Hold a lizard, extract DNA from fruit, and come and meet Winny, Australian Museum’s resident terror toddler dinosaur – at an event with this much science, her curiosity is bound to get the better of her.
Come along and see how science can be found in the most unexpected and amazing ways.
Please note: due to venue restraints, there are no strollers allowed in the theatre spaces and seating will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis for shows and workshops on the day.
