Science Alive! really is all kinds of awesome. Join this fun family day out and discover how science and technology influences our everyday lives.

For the first time, Science Alive! will be hosting the showcase and judging of the Oliphant Science Awards, an annual competition for South Australian school students. The competition aims to develop students’ interest in science through a range of categories suiting a wide variety of abilities and interests. Monica Oliphant, granddaughter of the founder, will be touring the event on Saturday.

The Mary Anning Art Prize will also be showcased at Science Alive! for the first time in 2022. The aim of the prize is to have young South Australian artists create an original piece of artwork that tells us something about prehistoric life in South Australia.

Science Alive! will adopt a new look this year, utilising industry zones throughout the event. One of these will be a Space Zone lead by the Australian Space Agency and Space Discovery Centre. We will also include zones dedicated to Defence, led by the Department of Defence and the ever so popular Cyber Zone.
