Science of Change, Life & Explosions (High School)
26 March 2021
Concert Hall, QPAC


You and everything you touch is made up of atoms. But how do all the building blocks of the universe stick together to make the Earth and everything on it?

See three of Australia’s leading chemists explore all the ways atoms and molecules interact, and learn why DNA looks like a spring, why bombs explode, and much, much more. Not only will you learn how the world works, you’ll see fire, hear bangs, and witness every chemical reaction you can imagine and some that you can’t! This is one event you won’t want to miss.

Science of Change, Life & Explosions is presented with QPAC.
