World Science Festival Brisbane is shaping up to be another supercharged celebration of science when it returns from 22-26 March next year.

The 2017 program was officially announced on Wednesday 2 November, showcasing the impressive calibre of talent that will be visiting Brisbane for the festival.

Queensland Museum CEO and Director Professor Suzanne Miller said the 2017 program would provide something for everyone with a mix of free and ticketed performances, debates, events and demonstrations - designed to suit all demographics.

The festival will provide an opportunity to celebrate the work of Brisbane’s leading research, innovation and scientific endeavours.

The free two-day Street Science! Program will return to South Bank Parklands with more than 40 free events for individuals and families to enjoy. The event will feature activities exploring the science behind robots, fossils, bubbles, slime, spiders, solar energy, drones, augmented reality, experiments and even explosions.

This year more than 120,000 attended the festival from across Australia and the world, delivering a boost for local tourism, businesses and the economy.

As a proud strategic partner of the World Science Festival Brisbane, we encourage everyone to take a look at the program, buy a ticket or attend a free event - and check out what all the fuss is about.
