Science Alive! Family Expo Teaches the Importance of Science in our Everyday World

Science Alive! puts the awesome back into science by teaching the next generation in an exciting, hands-on way. The interactive family expo is back in Adelaide for its 14th year on 3- 4 August 2019.

It’s a huge family day out with opportunities to program a robot, take a virtual tour of the universe, interact with native animals, fly a drone, make some slime or get up close to a Dalek. Science Alive! has a broad appeal for all ages. The event presents science and technology in a more friendly way than ever before.

Exhibits are challenging, fun and entertaining but they also show how important science is in our everyday world.

Kids of all ages will love watching the Army’s Drone Racing Team in action and having a go too. The whole family can view the night sky in three huge stardomes.

Science is much more than test tubes and lab coats, and Science Alive! really gives people an opportunity to see this.

There is also an extensive range of science toys on sale, so kids can continue to grow their passion for science at home and parents can get some handy ideas for educational gifts.

Live shows run across each day, featuring explosive and planetary science, the mysterious world of invertebrates, scientific circus entertainment, Australian wildlife and Curiosity Show legends, Rob and Deane, presenting their Optical Illusions Show.

Come and join the fun!
