2019 will see the Science Alive debut of Dr Quark’s amazing Scientific Circus Show!

2019 brings a whole range of brand new exhibitors to Science Alive! OzGrav (the ARC Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery), which aims to capitalise on the historic first detections of gravitational waves to understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped spacetime, and to inspire the next generation of Australian scientists and engineers through this new window on the Universe.

The Australian Dalek Builders’ Union will be here again in force, encouraging interest in the technology of Dalek-building and showing off their variety of full-sized Daleks – you might even get a chance to get up close and personal with them and even learn how to speak like a Dalek!
