Featuring more than 200 events that bring science to life, Sydney Science Festival celebrates and showcases Sydney’s diverse and multidisciplinary science and innovation community through a program of talks by world-leading researchers, hands-on workshops, exhibitions and family events exploring all areas of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). The Festival brings together cultural and research institutions, museums, universities and communities across greater Sydney and invites them to discover, discuss and debate science. The 2018 Festival is the biggest yet, with over 200 events throughout Sydney presented in collaboration with over 80 science organisations.

Through strengthening the ties between scientists and the communities they serve, Sydney Science Festival empowers audiences and helps create an active, engaged and informed Sydney. The Festival aims to encourage an interest in science among the general public and young people and provides opportunities to highlight Sydney’s scientific credentials and foster partnerships between the community, research organisations and industry.

Part of National Science Week, Sydney Science Festival is produced by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and Australian Museum with support from Inspiring Australia.
