Australia's Biggest Science Festival

The Australian Museum Science Festival (AMSF) aims to bring together different sectors of the scientific community to educate and excite the next generation about science. It achieves this by providing students, teachers and community members the chance to experience hands-on science.

It provides an opportunity for people to talk to scientists from leading institutions, and to discover the future that science can bring through attending expo booths, talks, shows and workshops.
