Sydney Science Festival

Tue 6th August, 2019 – Sun 18th August, 2019
Explore the future of space travel, wonder at Luke Jerram’s famous replica moon or stargaze in Centennial Parklands.

Coinciding with National Science Week, the Sydney Science Festival is back for its fifth year with a huge 13-day program featuring scientists, conservationists and comedians.

The 2019 festival asks, “How is science influencing the future?” and will cover topics including activism and climate change, the state of the world’s oceans, space travel, robotics, and innovations for human health.

More than 160 events – including exhibitions, talks and tours – will spread through the city’s cultural spaces, universities and museums.

Highlights include an all-women panel of scientists from the Australian Space Agency exploring the future of space travel; Apollo 11, an exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing featuring Luke Jerram’s famous replica moon; the annual Indigenous Sciences Symposium; and an evening of star and planet gazing in Centennial Parklands soundtracked by Sydney Youth Orchestra.
