Kicking off in celebration of National Science Week, Gingin Shire and its surrounds are hosting the inaugural Gingin Science Festival. There are many diverse activities, in the area, that are all linked by science and the Festival will bring Perth families to an event that combines healthy activity, entertainment, and fascinating knowledge presented at all levels, to show everyone how important science is in our lives. Science enriches our lives with understanding, and helps to provide our livelihood through important practical scientific endeavour that underpins a large part of our modern economy.
The Festival is modeled on the concept that science is for everyone and can be combined with art and music and an interactive component for children. All this is combined with sci-fest public events and experts showing off the science of the Gingin Shire as well as being lots of FUN.
The Gingin Science Festival will spread across the entire Shire with the GDC one of three main focal points, along with Gingin Town. Exhibitions and open days will feature across many locations where the science behind diverse rural activities will be presented. A special exhibition, the Gravitational Wave Exhibition will be on display at the Gravity Discovery Centre and will celebrate the discovery that Einstein’s Theory was correct. The festival will include sci-fests in community venues, with many fun events, competitions and science engagement by world experts. There will be musical performances, open galleries, farms and even ‘science in the pubs’. Check out the program for all the science fun to come.Learn More
