Dr Karl's Great Moments in Science

Events - Body Content

Calling all science lovers! Have your burning science questions, be they chemical, physical, technological, astrophysical or astronomical, answered in Dr Karl’s Great Moments in Science.

The search for truth has always been hard. But did you know that a whale and a fish can keep on swimming after they have died (the reason is physics, not biology) and that we are running out of sand (yup, they had to build the world’s tallest building in Dubai with Australian sand)? 

Find out if it’s true that Pterodactyls were flying, two-legged dinosaurs, whether we can both stop and reverse Climate Change with today’s technology, and what is the quickest rate that humans can eat in kilograms per minute.

Your whole household can join Dr Karl from the comfort of home and find the answers to questions you’ve been wondering about and questions you’ve never thought of, while having fun! 

Science AT Parramatta is a collaboration between the City of Parramatta and Powerhouse Museum and is part of Sydney Science Festival.
