The Circle of Life (High School)
25 March 2021
Concert Hall, QPAC

Summary

Ever wondered where chemistry stops and biology begins? Or what happens to the nutrients inside of living things when they die? Find out at the World Science Festival Brisbane as three of Griffith’s leading biologists – Dr Sally Wasef, Dr Julien Louys and Prof Andrew Smith – take you on a biological journey from the most basic forms of life through to the most complex example of life ever known – you!

 Learn how life first began, how cells diversify and group together to become organisms, how organisms coordinate to be ecosystems, how environments affect natural selection, and so much more. The Circle of Life is your one stop shop for everything biology.

The Circle of Life is presented with QPAC.
