- Bookings are not required.
Come along to get hands-on with a diverse range of interactive science activities accessible to all ages. Activities will include: Yarning with Elders on bush foods and medicines, Indigenous astronomy, maths puzzles, making Aboriginal tools, physics and chemistry activities, and much more! You will also meet Indigenous Elders and student leaders from the National Indigenous Science Education Program who will be assisting in demonstrating the activities.
The event will begin with a traditional smoking ceremony and official welcome at 10am. There will also be the opportunity to purchase food and Aboriginal arts and crafts.
Indigenous student leaders from northern NSW and the Riverina will be on-hand to guide participants through the science demonstrations. These students are trained through NISEP so as to give them the confidence to be STEM leaders of the future. Check out this video of the 2019 event.
