â€œLast year the festival attracted more than 200,000 people and delivered more than 100 events across six locations â€“ Gladstone, Chinchilla, Toowoomba, Ipswich, Brisbane and Townsville.â€
â€œThe World Science Festival Brisbane continues to grow in Toowoomba, and last year more than 1000 people, including over 100 students attended the programs, which is fantastic.The Queensland Government is proud to be supporting the World Science Festival Brisbane in 2019 as it once again connects Queenslanders to science,â€ Minister Enoch said.
Queensland Museum Networkâ€™s CEO Dr Jim Thompson said the Regional Program offers a stellar line up of shows and presenters talking all things space, medical science, and jobs of the future.
â€œScience is always evolving and by taking it out of the lab into public spaces is a great way to share the latest discoveries and advancements that will impact our lives,â€ Dr Thompson said.
â€œWe are looking forward to taking the show on the road to Toowoomba and I encourage everyone to come along and discover the wonder and excitement of science at Cobb+Co Museum thanks to the World Science Festival Brisbane regional program.â€
