Thousands of people poured through this year’s stellar World Science Festival event – many of them enjoying Griffith University’s own inspiring and engaging programs.
From the sounds of 84 pianos at the Queensland Conservatorium to tackling important environmental issues in main stage events and providing hands-on fun for budding scientists of the future, Griffith had all aspects of science covered during the five-day extravaganza.
The South Bank Parklands again turned into a science playground with dozens of free immersive events for families to enjoy, and none other than Griffith’s Science on the Go! team back with an ever bigger set up this year for guests to explore.
Children were able to hold bubbles, shoot air bazookas, try out augmented reality goggles, peer into microscopes and more, showing that an education or career in science can be fun.
Organisers said the event, which Griffith was an academic partner of, exceeded all expectations with thousands of people turning up to free, family-friendly exhibits.
