SciFest 2023: Moving forward (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4)

Live Event

Join the team from Street Science for Moving forward: Innovation forming our future this National Science Week


Join Street Science for this gourmet event as we investigate what’s actually in the food we eat, and explore some of the delightful delicacies you might encounter in the restaurants of the future. Audiences will be amazed as your presenter shows you how to launch flying potatoes, use mushroom spores to create fireballs, and plate up some future foods designed in the lab!

Your students will walk away with a greater understanding of how the food industry has evolved over the years, from its humble beginnings in farms right into the realms of science fiction.

This gastronomic extravaganza has been designed and specifically tailored so it aligns with the 2023 National Science Week school’s theme. Your students will gain valuable insights about healthy eating habits and how they can meet their nutritional needs in a variety of ways.

We will inspire your students, invigorate your teachers, and have everyone in your school community celebrating science!

This initiative is supported by Inspiring Australia NSW as part of National Science Week.
