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 invites cultural and research institutions, museums, universities and communities across greater Sydney to discover, discuss and debate science.

The Festival aims to engage the public with science through encouraging dialogue between experts and audiences, while fostering understanding of the links between science, society and Sydney’s diverse culture. It provides opportunities to highlight Sydney’s scientific credentials, bringing scientific organisations together and supporting them in the production of diverse science-themed events for people across the community.

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.
