Fans of Science in Australia will have the time of their lives this March. The World Science Festival is landing on Brisbane from the 9th to the 13th of the month for an annual weeklong celebration of everything science.
Imagine a platform that takes science fresh out of the laboratory and into public spaces like museums, parks, streets, and performing arts venues in the region. That’s what you can expect out of its exciting edition in Australia. The festival brings together the world’s great minds in science and the arts to seek and encourage the audience to ask meaningful questions about our future.
If you’re embarking on this scientific mission in Brisbane, you can choose from a myriad of events and activities brought to you by the Queensland Museum. Don’t miss the opening night at Playhouse, QPAC, where World Science co-founder and physicist Brian Greene will be joined by an ensemble for the performance of “Light Falls: Space, Time, and an Obsession of Einstein” to celebrate the 100th year of Albert Einstein’s discovery of the General Theory of Relativity.
Another performance art at Playhouse QPAC will be led by Emmy Award-winning actor and writer Alan Alda who brings you “Dear Albert”, which delves into Einstein’s personal correspondence, which will walk us through his life and work.
Younger attendees might fancy the morning and afternoon sessions of ‘Cool Jobs’. During this event, an engineer who works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be joined onstage by a professional stuntman and an expert in paleontology, who will share a wide range of careers related to science.
Meanwhile, researchers at the Queensland Museum will host a flatback turtle hatching demonstration. Several programs aim to bring minds together for meaningful dialogue. You can also look forward to different activities to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, QUT Gardens Theatre Foyer, Griffith University, to name a few.
