Sydney Science Festival

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 8-20 August 2017, the Festival encourages people of all ages and knowledge levels to discover, discuss and debate science through a program of talks, hands-on workshops, exhibitions and events for family exploring all areas of STEAM.
