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.
