Join us on Sunday 11 August for Science in the Scrub – a FREE family fun day out at Western Sydney Parklands!

Lizard Log will transform into a pop−up village of scientific wonder this National Science Week, with live science shows, hands−on experiments, native animals and over 30 stalls to explore.

Don’t miss the life−sized roaming dinosaur and your chance to meet real−life scientists at this special event.

Event highlights include:

  • Meet a dinosaur – Get up close to crowd-favourite Ginger the life-sized Australovenator dinosaur, who returns in 2024.
  • Dr Graham’s Blow Up Science Show – Dr Graham explodes his way through the chemistry and physics of things that go bubble, boom, zoom, bang and occasionally catch on fire.
  • Cool aeronautics – Design, make and fly a mini helicopter, with help from the Cool Aeronautics team of aeronautical and space engineers.
  • Rooftop Bees – Watch busy bees at work in an observation hive and taste a range of delicious honeys. 
  • Robokids – Learn technological skills to thrive in the ever-changing, automated world that lies ahead.
  • Indigenous Science – Participate in hands-on science experiments with the team from Macquarie University’s National Indigenous Science Education Program (only at Science in the Scrub).
