Questacon – the National Science and Technology Centre based in Canberra – is bringing its special pop-up science centre back to the South Burnett next week.

The Questacon Science Circus will be at Kingaroy Town Hall on Sunday, August 5, for parents and children to explore science and have fun with a range of hands-on exhibits.

There’ll more than 40 interactive science exhibits to experiment with as well as live science shows to enjoy throughout the day.

Visitors will be able to spin like an ice-skater, discover how fast they can throw a ball, freeze their shadow on a wall and test their reflexes.

The Science Circus is staffed by postgraduate students studying a Master of Science Communication Outreach at the Australian National University.

They spend three months on the road, talking to people about science and technology on visits to communities all over Australia.

The Questacon team will also be dropping into schools across the South Burnett during their visit.

The Science Circus has visited more than 500 towns and communities since it began in 1985.

  • The Science Circus will be open from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Kingaroy Town Hall on Sunday, August 5.¬†Entry is $6 for adults, students/concession $5, and family $18 (cash only, no EFTPOS). Children under 5 are free. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
