Space and Science Festival

The Space & Science Festival is coming to Onslow College on May 14th!

Early bird tickets are available now at


The festival is organised by a not-for-profit society founded by 20 scientists, engineers, technologists, parents and teachers. They aim to
provide amazing experiences for all ages. We have people from primary schools to retirement homes coming, so there is something for everyone. Bring the whole family.

Highlights this year include:

  • A visit from Jen Blank, a NASA scientist who works with the Mars Curiosity Rover team.
  • Bottle rocket making and launching
  • A robotic telescope to look at the moon, planets and stars (10 inch Meade LX200 ACF)
  • Bioluminescent bacteria with Dr Siouxsie Wiles
  • Astrophotography lessons with Mark Gee
  • A big screen for the central quad for science videos (weather permitting)
  • Plus lots more science, engineering, technology, maths and space stuff to explore!

Also, the festival needs more keen volunteers. If you or a family member would like to be involved in any way please email or talk to Kent Hogan.

See you on May 14th!
