Sydney Science Festival 2023

Location marker iconAcross SydneyTime iconCLOSED IN 2023

Sydney Science Festival is an exciting and accessible program of science events presented by Powerhouse Museum in August. It aims to inspire curiosity about what science is capable of – and criticism too – in a series of interactive performances, talks and exhibits across the city.

This year’s festival theme – Trace – explores the many marks we leave on our environment and how scientists strive to understand the sources and effects of different phenomena. The theme is responsive to key Powerhouse exhibitions: Atmospheric Memory; A Line A Web A World; and 100 Climate Conversations, which highlight advances in our understanding of human activity and climate change.
