The annual program by the Australian Museum, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and other partners is an opportunity for curious kids of all ages and schools to think, talk and experience the science conducted at our organisations – from the study of the natural world and research into the effects of climate change to the exploration of the environmental knowledges of First Nations peoples.

The super-fun online Sydney Science Trail will be packed with on-demand activities, kids games and opportunities to learn both at home and in the classroom.

Join us again this year, when Sydney Science Trail returns better than ever! Uncover even more opportunities to get up close to the world of science.
