Science on track at The Workshops Rail Museum

29 October 2021

World Science Festival Queensland 2021 will reach the end of the line at The Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich next week.

Presented by the Queensland Museum Network, the two-day festival will explore the ever-evolving world of science with hands-on activities for families and students from across the region.

Member for Bundamba Lance McCallum said the program would take flight at a community day with free entry to The Workshops on Sunday, 7 November.

“Rocket launching workshops will signal the start of the festival, and City of Science will continue with virtual reality experiences, science demonstrations, pop-up displays and food science talks,” Mr McCallum said.

“This is one of the biggest days on The Workshops’ calendar, and it will once again be transformed into a science playground with immersive, engaging and educational events for everyone.

“On Monday, 8 November students from Ipswich and surrounds will compete in challenges and take part in sessions on marine biology, arachnology and scientific photography.

“This is a great opportunity for our local community, and it will continue into the future with the Palaszczuk Government committing $9 million to secure the World Science Festival for another three years from 2022.”

The Workshops Rail Museum is at North Street, North Ipswich.
