Space & Science Festival

After inspiring more than 10,000 people in Wellington, the Space & Science Society have been working hard to bring you the 5th annual festival. 

Space & Science Festival, is a mix of spectacular science displays, science talks and hands-on classroom activities - all created by a group of volunteer parents, teachers, scientists, engineers and technologists. Our focus is on making science accessible, and providing fun experiences that encourage young minds and nurture their interest in a wide range of STEM activities.

This year, the Festivals' Lead Partner, Genesis School-gen, will be showcasing their hands-on child-friendly activities so you can explore the world of energy;
Thanks to support from the US Embassy, we welcome back two incredible Woman in Science - NASA's Dr. Yvonne Cagle, and Dr. Jen Blank;
The Tesla Coils return to spark your imagination;
Wellington Astronomical Society are long time partners and will show you the night skies through their telescopes;
Marvel at the beauty of Bio-luminescent Bacteria, thanks to Siouxsie Wile's team at BrightEnz.
Running throughout the event will be a full programme of interesting and thought provoking talks from some of New Zealand's leading and innovative organisations and award-winning Educators. 

Tickets are available only through the Space & Science Festival website and have been kept to a very modest $10 per person thanks to our lead partner Genesis School-gen. Ticket sales will support both Onslow College and the Space & Science Festival.
