I actually forgot all about these photo's as they were on B's camera, so they are somewhat late ;-)
This is was the very first Science Fair for the Gold Coast so we weren't sure what to expect. The fair was held in a parklands area over looking the broadwater. Various displays from envrionmental companies, to school displays, live shows and experiments were the order of the day.
Surprisingly there weren't that many people there, which was good for us, but not so great for the event. I just hope that they plan to continue growing this event in the years to come.
There were lots of little hands on activities and experiments that were somewhat tricky to get photo's of so we don't have a great deal to share.
One of the schools were showing off their self proplled cars they had made in the lead up to the fair. These inspired B.
Once the cars were together they had a little race track set up where you could see just how far you could get your little car to go.
C enjoyed his first funny mirrors experience. I don't hink he quite knew what to make of them though!
The CSIRO had quite a few simple experiments set up for the children to try their hand at.
We were lucky enough to be there for one of the fabulous shows, of which I have now forgotten the name, but it was something along the lines of The Big Bang. It was full of noise and smoke and lots of lots of fun. Sorry no photo's we were all too busy enjoying the show to worry about taking snapshots. ;-)
Everyone had a nice time at the Science Fair, there wasn't as much as there as I had expected, but I am not complaining since this is the first of its kind in the area. I am sure it will only continue to grow in leaps and bounds.
