Science Alive is back in 2018 with more FREE hands-on fun this May. Event organiser Brian Haddy said there’s something for the whole family with spectacular SciWorld science shows, native animals, robotics, dinosaur puzzles, bugs ‘n’ slugs, and much more.

For the first time, this year’s event will feature a microscope that magnifies items to 75,000 times their size.

“It’s a whole different way to see our world,” Brian said.

SciWorld will amaze audiences with its edgy fire- and-ice show and Marty McBubble is back with a newly enhanced Scientific Bubble Show guaranteed to attract a huge Shedley Theatre audience several times during the day.“Science Alive aims to build the community’s awareness on the scope and importance of science and technology, while making it fun for the kids,” Brian said.

“While there is great uncertainty around jobs for the future, what is certain is that they will involve science and technology more than ever before.

“So for young people of today, the more that they can keep up with the latest science developments and stay at the cutting edge of new and emerging technologies, the more likely they are to be well equipped for future employment.”

The free event is on Sunday, 6 May at the Playford Civic Centre, 10 Playford Boulevard, Elizabeth (10am to 4pm).
