Time for a different sort of podcast episode! This time we bring you to the Innovation Games where the last day of National Science Week finished with a bang in the heart of Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday! With help from Federal Government via Inspiring Australia and the NSW State Government, the Innovation games concluded the Sydney Science Festival with flare as more than 20 captivating STEM providers descended on Cathy Freeman Park to bring science to the public. From autonomous cars & drones to discussions on the mathematics of zombie outbreaks and how to counter mosquito infestations, western Sydney celebrated scientific innovation & creative thinking with over 4000 attendees!

The Innovation Games were co-curated by Sydney Olympic Park, Inspiring Australia, Australian Botanic Garden and Fizzics Education as part of the Sydney Science Festival. Thank you to the >20 STEM providers who were involved in the event, no doubt we'll see you next year!
