20 – 24 MAR
Various locations, Brisbane

Presented by Queensland Museum the festival brings some of Australia’s and the world’s most eminent  scientists and educators out of the labs and into Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct and regional Queensland.
Be prepared to be amused and amazed as Australia’s favourite science communicator Dr Karl Kruszelnicki returns for Extreme Moments in Science. One of the most popular attractions back again at the festival is ‘The Hatchery’, showcasing and supporting turtle conservation, where visitors will have the opportunity to view baby loggerhead turtles hatching from eggs that are incubated onsite and timed to emerge during the festival. The popular and FREE Street Science! extravaganza, will also return and change Brisbane’s Cultural Forecourt into a massive science experiment for two days (23-24 March), with free hands-on activities for everyone, including robots, drones, and explosive science shows on the Osmosis Stage.
