July 11, 2018 Whats On No Comments Email Email

Explore the wonders of science with the stunning backdrop of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, at the inaugural Living Laboratory event on 11 August 2018. In this free National Science Week program, adults and children will get the opportunity to explore the scientist’s labs, see behind-thescenes in the herbarium and discover amazing plants and wildlife at stalls throughout the Garden.

This year, the Garden will be alive with animals, as Australian Wildlife Displays bring all numbers of creepycrawlies, slimy frogs and large mammals for you to see and even touch. Relax by the mainstage as live music filled the Garden and scientists perform talks and engaging experiments.

The Garden’s PlantClinic will be opening its doors for some amazing behind-the-scenes activities, where adults and kids can discover the weird and wonderful world of plant sciences. Meet the Garden’s scientists and horticulturalists and find out about the amazing work they do to grow our knowledge of the world we all live in.

“There is a lot more to the Garden than just displays and flowers. Some of the most cutting-edge science in the world is happening right here in the heart of Sydney, and it’s our responsibility to inspire people and engage young people in the vital science that is plant research” says Christina McGhee, Team Leader of Education and Community Programs at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

Other highlights include:

• A main stage, with live music and scientists who will be performing talks and engaging animal displays

• A Science Safari where children complete 6 challenges to explore the Gardens

• Discover all sorts of amazing animals, from frogs to bats to birds

• Tours of the herbarium and Gardens, with demonstrations on how to make your own specimens

• Plant sales and plant identification stalls for visitors to ask our experts all the questions they have

• Behind the scenes activities at the PlantClinic research base.

Other events for National Science Week at the Gardens includes Astronomy at the Calyx, Plan Bee: Create your own Bee Hotel and Secret Science.

This initiative is supported by grant funding from the Australian Government.
