Science Fun Day

Fundraiser for Camp Quality!

On Saturday the 28th of May the UQ Demo Troupe is holding a fund raising Science Day at the University of Queensland. Between noon and 4pm this family-friendly event will allow participants to explore all the weird and wacky wonders science has to offer while supporting Camp Quality, who have been helping families and children cope with cancer since 1983.

With demo shows starting every hour and workshops running throughout the afternoon there is plenty of fun to be had by all. Activities include: seeing fire tornados, eating food that’s at minus 200 degrees Celsius, lying on a bed of nails, having a tug-of-war against air, seeing lightning indoors, walking on water and much, much more! Cost is $5 per person or $12 per family (kids under 4 are free). All money goes to Camp Quality.

  • Time: 12:00 pm to 4:00pm
  • Venue: Parnell Building (7), The University of Queensland, St. Lucia
  • Cost: $5 per person, $12 per family
  • Questions? Contact Andrew (
