Roxby Dows Mad Scientists returned for another year of whacky adventures!

As a part of National Science Week 2017, school children in Roxby Downs were given the chance to be MAD SCIENTISTS! Hosted by the Roxby Downs Council, and featuring scientists from Arid Recovery and the Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources, children had a blast making bouncey balls, ooblek and grass heads.

Children also caught bugs, raced balloons and got up-close and personal with wild animal skulls and skins. It all made for a very exciting afternoon, with the kids getting a taste of how weird, wacky, interesting and fun science can be.
