Have your mind blown by the World Science Festival
The inaugural World Science Festival Brisbane will turn the Queensland Museum into a hub of wondrous discovery and exploration of science in all its forms.
One of the greatest qualities of the human mind is its constant search for understanding and insatiable appetite for new information. The greatest scientists in history shaped the world we live in now, and the plethora of fields in science continue to be the greatest source of discovery for humanity. Highlighting this importance, the World Science Festival is a five-day celebration of science that showcases the newest discoveries through a series of debates, theatrical performances, interactive exhibitions and documentary screenings. The Brisbane iteration of the World Science Festival will take place at the Queensland Museum, QPAC, GOMA and the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 9–13, bringing in experts in a variety of fields and informative displays from across the globe.
The program encompasses a range of topics, displayed in a variety of entertaining forms. Be transported back to a time before humanity in Dinosaurs & Prehistory in Virtual Reality, watch Alan Alda delve into the life and work of Albert Einstein in Dear Albert, listen to comedian Josh Richards blend humour and science in Cosmic Nomad and glean some knowledge from the godfather of Australian science, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. The World Science Festival also offers a range of activities for kids and schools. Head to the World Science Festival website for more information on events and locations.
