About SciWorld

SciWorld is a South Australian not-for-profit organisation full of people who are passionate about science and has been successfully operating since 2007 following the closure of Adelaide’s Investigator Science and Technology Centre.

We have continued and expanded to provide science outreach programs in various locations around metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia. Our science shows, workshops, birthday parties and free public events are of benefit to all South Australians, with particular emphasis on those in the 3 to 17 year age group.

We gratefully acknowledge all our staff, supporters and volunteers who make it possible to take science out and about and promote STEM to South Australian Schools and the wider community.

As a mobile education team, SciWorld continues to evolve and consolidate and operates 7 days per week for 50 weeks of the year!
