Science circus comes to Taree

SAXBY'S Stadium will transform from a basketball arena to a science world next Tuesday night (May 20) when the Shell Questacon Science Circus comes to town.

The exhibition rarely visits the Manning region and this will be a great opportunity for the local community to gain a greater understanding and awareness of science and technology, in a fun and interactive environment.

The Shell Questacon Science Circus is a great opportunity for parents and children to share, discover and explore science together.

You can encourage a fascination and enjoyment of science by exploring hands-on exhibits.

Go along and spin like an ice-skater, discover how fast you can throw a ball, freeze your shadow on a wall and test your reflexes.

Spectacular science shows are presented regularly during opening hours. You may see giant smoke rings, bricks being smashed on someone's stomach or a science circus presenter setting their hands on fire! Science toys are for sale from our shop.

Admission is just $6 for adults, $5 for students and concession holders, $18 for a family, and children under five are free.

Payment is cash only and children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

The circus will run from 6pm to 9pm, at Saxby's Stadium, 1 Bligh Street, Taree.
