The Sounds of Science

Band Room // Adult: $15 Concession: $13

The Sounds of Science is a storytelling night where a group of science lovers take us back to where it all began.

When scientists speak publicly they are normally explaining how our world works, or the results of their research. We very rarely hear about the scientists themselves. What drew them to their career? What gets them out of bed in the morning? What started them on their journey of lifelong discovery? Why does the science matter to them?

‘The Sounds of Science’ is a chance to hear where it all began for them; their origin story. What stoked their interest and passion into a life long adventure in science?

Come to the beautiful Wesley Anne, grab a meal and a beverage and hear five scientists share their personal stories about science.
