Steam Ahead, an interactive art and science extravaganza for kids (and grown-ups) is set to take over Bungarribee Park in Western Sydney Parklands (Sydney’s Biggest Backyard) on the weekend of 25 and 26 May.

Kids grab your grown-ups and get down to Bungarribee Park this weekend to meet giant roving creatures, rock out with The Vegetable Plot, step inside the Crazy Science Lab, create with giant loose parts, code a flying drone, solve a forensic mystery or make a hotel for microbats.

Check out the cooking demonstrations (the bugs are good enough to eat!), interactive installations, games, workshops and discussions – you can be sure of all kinds of curiosities!

Featured artists and attractions:

The Edible Bug Shop – find out all about the nutritional value of bugs and the role they are likely to play in our diets in the future. Taste them if you dare!

Crazy Science Lab – create bubbling CO2 canisters that fly through the air, investigate the pH of chemicals and see amazing 'magical' potions that appear to change colour in front of your eyes.

Forensics: Who Dunnit? – test fingerprints, bite marks, splatter patterns and all sorts of evidence to help solve a tricky mystery.

Lost in Books – take a seat and be treated to a story or share one of your own with the crowd.

Nature Journaling – explore the riches of the natural world by writing and/or drawing the surroundings.

Gen Zen Warriors – try mindfulness techniques that include dance, relaxation, crafts, art, games and movement.

Robotics Man – a heady mix of circus, stunts, comedy and construction, Sam takes his audience on a journey of epic proportions

Fast track your knowledge, build on what you already know, gain real-life skills, get your hands dirty and go wild.
