Centennial Park - Science in the Swamp, 11am - 3pm, Free, Age: 3+
A fun, free family festival of science displays and activities to celebrate National Science Week (11 - 19 August)
Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, or Cat woman - we all know about their fantastic strength and abilities. But did you know you can find fantastic superpowers right here in the Centennial Parklands? Join our scientists at their stalls and they will show what amazing superpowers you find in nature. Super sight, super hearing, super strength and camouflage are only some of the capabilities you will discover. The incredible roving Dinosaur will be coming back as well and show you a bit of pre-historic fauna.
Be sure to put on your cape and dress up as your favourite superhero for this great event.

However, if you do register in advance, as a thank you from Centennial Park you'll go into the draw to win 1 of 3 double passes to one of our WILD PLAY programs!

Visitors and superheros can roam the stalls of Science in the Swamp and the rest of the Park until their heart is content but please be aware the Ian Potter Children's WILD PLAY Garden will be closed for the month of August for some much needed rejuvenation.
