Sydney Science Festival 2019
UTS Science are excited to be joining forces with Sydney Science Festival once again!
Led by UTS Science researchers and experts, our talks, workshops and exhibitions will cover a broad spectrum of topics that explore and question science and its impact on humanity and the world. From understanding the possibility of curing diseases in space, to how we can transform ocean-dwelling organisms into renewables such as food, medicine and even fuel – there’s something for everyone.
