Townsville STEM Faires are amazing experiences!

Townsville, you blew us away with over 4,100 people attending our third STEM Faire at Citylibraries Riverway on 19th August 2023 – what an amazing experience! The science shows by Big Bang Education got everyone engaged, and with a range of exhibitors and guest speakers, no wonder some people stayed for the whole day! Thanks to our partners and supporters, Townsville City Council, James Cook University, and Smart Precinct NQ.

This National Science Week project was supported by Inspiring Australia, an Australian Government initiative.


In 2019 over 1,800 attended the Faire at Thuringowa Library.

Dr Graham Walker’s science shows were very popular again, and people were able to engage with a range of exhibitors including Coral Watch, CSIRO Education, James Cook University, Rockfield Technologies, Tech NQ and many more! Speakers from JCU students to AIMS researchers were well attended too, and secondary students pitching their inventions for the Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow program were amazing!


In 2018 we welcomed 1,700 people to the Faire at Thuringowa Library.

The science shows by internationally acclaimed science communicator Dr Graham Walker was the standout, with parents and children commenting is was the highlight of the day. The chance to play with robots, provided by Annandale Christian College and Stories Galore, and to fly a drone, provided by Townsville City Council, were also very popular. Townsville’s scientists, inventors and innovators of tomorrow were showcased via the Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow program. As well as the active programs, attendees appreciated the static displays of the Townsville STEM Photography competition award winners.
