Connect with water - Street Science! Stall @ World Science Festival Brisbane

Check out the Street Science! stall hosted by Brisbane City Council and supported by Seqwater as part of World Science Festival Brisbane on Saturday 25 March. Explore your connection with water through interactive activities such as water quality testing and healthy waterways games! Play with an interactive model of Brisbane’s creek catchments and discover a new world in Seqwater’s virtual reality sandbox. Get a close look at water macro invertebrates and if you’re lucky, reach in to touch live marine animals such as sea stars, sea urchins, sea cucumbers and others.  See the creatures that live in our bay and oceans, and learn why what you put down your drain or gutter is important to them! You can also find your house or school on the waterways and creek catchment map, and participate in a collaborative artwork. Displays will let you explore photographic history of the Brisbane River during times of change, and find out why it’s important to be water-smart.
