This free, community open event is a celebration of Indigenous and Western science and technology and highlights the relevance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to our everyday lives.

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, learning about customarily used seaweeds for environmental sustainability, Indigenous astronomy, cultural performances connecting to the science of sound and movement science, making Aboriginal tools, maths, 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 10 am. You can join the event any time from 10am to 3pm. There will be the opportunity to purchase food and Aboriginal arts and crafts.

This National Science Week event is organised by the National Indigenous Science Education Program, Macquarie University in partnership with City of Sydney. It is made possible through the support of Inspiring Australia and grant funding from the Australian Government.
