World Science Festival Queensland is returning to Ipswich this August. Come join the celebration as The Workshops Rail Museum once again becomes a STEM playground with immersive and family-friendly events for everyone to enjoy.

Explore a transport wonderland for hands-on science fun – launch a rocket, step into a new world with Professor Tech's virtual reality station, and marvel at super silly science shows that go off with a BANG!

Experience furry, slimy and eight-legged creatures live and groove to the beats of our science band, Red Rocket 3!
