Fringe science shows highlight STEM fun

The 2021 Science in the Fringe program includes several Flinders events and personnel, and a fun element into diverse explorations in science.

STEMtacular is an event that allows the audience to engage in hands-on activities with students and staff of the Australian Science and Mathematics School, Flinders STEM Academy and STEM Outreach team. The workshop presentation at the Australian Science and Mathematics School on Saturday February 27 will be encouraging young particupants aged between 4 to 12 years (accompanied by an adult) to play, laugh and learn as they interact with technological wonders, cutting edge gadgets, drones and curiously addictive puzzles. $5 tickets include general admission to STEMtacular.

Post Dining – which includes Flinders nutrition and dietetics graduate Hannah Rohrlach – is presenting Eating Tomorrow, a back-to-the-future time travel experiment, immersing audiences in prospective scenarios of what our food systems, customs and behaviours might become in the next 50 years. Post Dining is a creative production company using food as a tool to connect with audiences, designing innovative immersive experiences that go straight to the gut, transforming hearts and opening minds – while also picking up several awards for performances at previous Adelaide Fringe Festivals. Eating Tomorrow is being held in the Basement at WEA Adult Learning, Angas St, Adelaide, from 24-to-28 February.
