Townsville STEM Faires are amazing experiences!
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.
