Saturday 23 March

10.00am – 10.30am: The Power of Pressure
Presented by UQ Science Demo Troupe

Air is all around us, and sometimes we hardly notice it. But get enough air in one place and it can be deceptively powerful. In this show we explore the physics behind air pressure and push the science to its limits.

10.45am – 11.15am: Science on the GO!
Presented by Griffith University

Come and experience the ‘States of Matter’ with the team of Science on the GO! You will enjoy experiments, explosions, and plenty of excitement as Science on the GO! demonstrates “States of Matter” using all the classic favourites, dry ice, liquid nitrogen and gases.

11.30am – 12.00pm: The World’s Best Innovators and Inventors
Presented by Street Science

Join the team from Street Science live on stage in a brand new exploration of all things science!  Both educational and energising, this show lives up to its title with a range of dynamic science demonstrations, exploring some of history’s coolest chemists, best biologists, and fantastic physicists, and their greatest world altering discoveries.

12.15pm – 12.45pm: BrainBuzz
Presented by the Nine Network

Can you make yourself invisible? Or float mid-air? Catch BrainBuzz – the kid’s TV show – host Kellyn Morris, Resident Scientist Clare Van Dorssen and BrainBuzz’s Einstein as they bring some of this TV fun to the World Science Festival Brisbane. There will be experiments, explosions, and plenty of excitement during this interactive experience which is guaranteed to bring lots of laughs.

1.00pm – 1.30pm: Science on the GO! (Repeat performance)
Presented by Griffith University

1.45pm – 2.15pm: Paper, Scissors – Rock!  
Presented by Linsey Pollak

You close your eyes… Is it a saxophone, a clarinet, a flute, an oboe? You open them and “WHOA!”, what you see are instruments made from paper, cellotape, a drinking straw, a rubber glove and some garden hose. Linsey makes music by live-looping self-invented instruments such as a paper clarinet, a drinking straw oboe, a Cylisax, a rubber glove bagpipe and “Mr Curly”.

2.30pm – 3.00pm: The World’s Best Innovators and Inventors (Repeat performance)
Presented by Street Science

3.15pm – 3.45pm: Supercooled Science
Presented by UQ Science Demo Troupe

Over 100 degrees colder than the chilliest Antarctic winter, liquid nitrogen is a pretty cool substance! In this show we demonstrate some crazy materials science and perform an experiment so extraordinary that modern physics still can’t explain it.

4.00pm – 4.30pm: Paper, Scissors – Rock! (Repeat performance)
Presented by Linsey Pollak

5.15pm – 6.15pm: Hope D
Hope’s originals range from melancholy ballads to upbeat anthems. Using different guitar effects and a drum pad, she creates songs on the spot with thoughtful layering and texturing. Having all this concentrated into a set of live music, you’ll be sure to hear something you like. Come and discover this amazing Brisbane based looper.

6.45pm – 7.30pm:  Chris Tamwoy

Chris is a self-taught guitarist with a unique ‘guitar tap’ playing style. Originally from the Torres Strait Islands, Chris now lives in Brisbane but travels widely with his music, a proud ambassador for his Culture and Country.

8pm – 9pm: Pat Tierney

Australian roots troubadour Pat Tierney’s music nestles somewhere between the inspiring sounds of Bob Dylan, Ry Cooder and Bob Marley. A hint of folk and blues with a splash of reggae roots, intertwined with soulful lap – slide guitar and sweet melodies.
