After almost eight weeks of staring at your own four walls, it's likely you're craving a disruption of your current orbit between bed and couch. Luckily, the Powerhouse Museum have created something that'll transport your mind to places far beyond your living room: Sydney Science Festival.

From Saturday, August 14–Sunday, August 22, you can get involved in Sydney Science Festival by joining one of its live-stream events. This year, the festival is completely online — and free — meaning you'll get to hear from science experts working across various disciplines without even leaving the house.

Catch the keynote address from the 2021 Sydney Science Festival ambassador and Deadly Science founder Corey Tutt; join Gomeroi astronomer Karlie Noon on a journey across the cosmos in Southern Sky Livestream; tune into panel discussion Pandemics — Past, Present and Future moderated by Dr. Norman Swan; hang out with tech pioneer Jaron Lanier in Gadgets, Dreams and Dilemmas; or book yourself into Great Moments in Science to discover some of today's biggest science ideas with Australia's much-loved, Dr. Karl.
