Sydney Olympic Park - Innovation Games, 12pm - 5.30pm, Free, Age: 5+

Engage with science in a fun, interactive and thrilling family day out at the Innovation Games. The event is part of the Sydney Science Festival during National Science Week.

The free event will entertain and inspire Sydneysiders’ interest in science, sport and technology. There’ll be loads of live shows, workshops, games and gadgets, film screenings, daring demos, crazy creatures, job-future info sessions and so much more.

The theme of the 2018 Innovation Games is Racing the Future. Attendees will be able to generate energy while burning some off by hitting the pump track with their BMX bikes, skateboards or scooters.

Visitors can also get the low down on drones, take-off on flying simulators or connect in real-time with aerospace personnel from the NASA space centre! There will be opportunities to learn about coding and career pathways into STEM fields, nature discovery trails, slimy and scaly creatures to pat, and kick the physics out of a footy.

The 2018 Innovation Games will be held near the Bledisloe Cup match at ANZ Stadium (opposite Cathy Freeman Park). It’s within walking distance of Spotless Stadium where the AFL’s GWS Giants will take on the Sydney Swans.
