Calling all curious children, nature-loving adults and adventurous families. Become platypus protectors, search for bird habitats or join an ecology tour of the Coolart Wetlands and Homestead Reserve as part of National Science Week 2019.
The fourth annual Science in the Park is a smorgasbord of free and accessible science activities for all ages on Sunday, August 11, from 10am-4pm. You’ll meet NASA scientist Dr Darlene Lim, pictured, to learn about life in extreme Earth habitats and beyond, as well as enjoy science presentations, tours of the reserve and fun hands-on science activities.
Leading up to the event, the art-science exhibition Mission Control is on at Coolart Homestead until August 17. Engaging the mind, imagination and the senses with inspirational art, Mission Control is flavoured with nostalgia, pinpointing a time when a footstep made history.
