Visitors to Cobb+Co Museum will be able to experience the museum after dark on Friday 17 August for a fun-filled night of science activities for all ages to celebrate National Science Week.
Curiouser & Curiouser is a one night only special event to celebrate our Aliceâ€™s Adventures in Wonderland exhibition, that will spark the minds of young and old with a science show, hands-on science activities and live music set in the surrounds of the iconic Cobb+Co Museum.
Queensland Museum Acting CEO Dr Jim Thompson said the Curiouser & Curiouser event would give Toowoomba audiences the chance to learn more about the latest science innovations shaping our world while enjoying the atmosphere of the Museum at night. â€œGuests will be able to explore the Museum and see an array of science innovations inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,â€ Dr Thompson said.
â€œThe event offers something for everyone with a variety of activities including holograms, light/liquid nitrogen demonstrations, drones, robotics, 3D printing and a science show. â€œWe are proud to be able to celebrate National Science Week across all of the campuses within the Queensland Museum Network and focus on sharing some of our many treasures and discoveries within our Museums, and to connect and inspire our visitors with the wonders of science.â€
National Science Week will run from 11 â€“ 19 August 2018 with events, activities, talks and shows for every age group, across the country, and it also presents an important opportunity to showcase the contributions of Australian scientists to the world we live in.
