World Science Festival Queensland is returning to Ipswich this August. Come join the celebration as Queensland Museum Rail Workshops once again becomes a STEM playground. Students can enjoy stimulating and inspiring experiences that showcase careers in STEM, including discussions with scientists, hands-on activities and exciting science shows.

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!
