Science Week at Gold Coast Libraries


Dive beneath the surf and explore marine science and the sustainability of our oceans during National Science Week, from 15-23 August.

Gold Coast Libraries has put together a packed program of free events for all ages. To stay COVID-safe, all events are available online, including interactive presentations, livestreamed talks and a documentary screening. There are also exciting prizes up for grabs, with the opportunity to have an up close and personal experience with marine life, through our friends at Sea World.

Headlining our program this year are two not-to-be missed events featuring climate change scientist Professor Tim Flannery:

In a special kids National Science Week event that will be live-streamed virtually, kids can learn all kinds of weird, wild and amazing facts about animals from Professor Flannery’s recent book, Explore your world: weird, wild, amazing!

Professor Flannery will also be discussing the impact of climate change on our oceans and marine life, in conversation with ABC Gold Coast’s Nicole Dyer. This event will also be livestreamed.

Tim’s events are hugely popular – book now so you don’t miss out.
