Science in the Park
National Science Week logo

Sunday 11th August 2019, 10am - 4pm

Care for a spot of frog calling, water bug identification, bird watching, or koala spotting?
Meet NASA Scientist Dr Darlene Lim to learn about life in extreme Earth habitats and beyond!

The Science in the Park event at the Coolart Wetlands and Homestead Reserve in Somers, will be the focus of free science activities on the Mornington Peninsula catering for all ages. PrimeSCI!, along with universities, state and local organisations and volunteer groups, will host a day of science presentations, eco-tours, science displays and hands-on activities, wildlife monitoring, and education on sustainable practices in the unique wetland environments of the Coolart Reserve.

The event will run in parallel with an astronomy art/science exhibition “The Moon and Beyond” at the Coolart Homestead, to compliment the National Science Week school theme of Destination Moon.

Please note: a free shuttle bus service around Somers will be introduced to provide easier parking options.
