As part of Big Science in Adelaide, we invite you to a science arena of stunning spectaculars and exciting discoveries.

All content of this event is selected from forefront and new light science to resonate with the theme. The scale of topics is far-reaching, from that in the field of nanoscale biophotonics (Prof Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem from ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics, University of Adelaide) to better understanding the of universe (Dr Madakbas, physicist (photonics), whose company builds night vision sensors for NASA and Hubble Space Telescope). Apart from the most invisible, the hidden science of light will also be revealed (Miroslav Kostecki, Technical Manager at eLabtronics, Adelaide) in live and interactive demonstrations.

The highlight will be the audience-stage interaction component: audience is invited to control the large colour light ribbons on stage via mobile phone using WiFi and use their phone-cameras to see the IR light.

The event will end with the engaging activity of “Many Hands Make Light Work” to recognize the significance of advancing science: achieving Zero Net Carbon and protecting the planet (Dr Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize Winner).
