The 9th Ultimo Science Festival is on in September! It's 10 days of serious science fun for adults, families, school groups, for young and old and in-between, for geeks, non-geeks, for everyone with curiosity. There’s something for anyone who wants to expand their mind, think about the world, wonder about how stuff works and ponder, “Why it is so?”
There are talks by researchers, hands-on workshops, opportunities to chat with scientists, science- comedy shows, children’s activities and panel discussions where you can have your say alongside celebrity science speakers. The Festival showcases the science credentials and interests of the partner organisations, bringing an exciting range of technology, design, education, communication and entertainment events.
