Science in the Garden 2017
It's back...and in two locations!
Grab your lab coats! Science in the Garden returns in 2017 for a day of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths activities in the great outdoors. Girl Guides, you’ll have a riot of a day making zoetropes, binary code jewellery, mouse trap cars, and all manner of things that whizz, bang and pop. And for our overnighters, settle in for a stellar night of sleeping under the stars…. What’s more, we’re holding the event in two stunning locations on 8 April. Join us at the Australian Botanic Gardens in Mount Annan, or at the new sister site, the Warrumbungle National Park near Coonabarabran.
