If successful, your Curiocity will be built and displayed at Curiocity Brisbane and World Science Festival Brisbane 2021, showcasing the talents of your students to thousands of visitors.
Curiocity Brisbane will fund a delegation of up to four students and two staff from the successful schools to come to Brisbane for three days in March 2021. You will see your Curiocity come to life and have the opportunity to take part in the set up of the work, media opportunities and the opening of Curiocity Brisbane, as well as some special behind-the-scenes tours. Travel and hotel accommodation in Brisbane will be provided.
At the end of Curiocity Brisbane, your Curiocity will be returned to your school to keep and enjoy.
Schools, classes or individual students come up with an idea for an installation that you can build. Remember, the installation can be physical or digital. Your Curiocity must explore the intersection between science, technology, engineering, maths and the arts.
Your school submits the idea on behalf of the students by 5pm on 18 November 2020. Only one submission per school will be accepted.
Successful submissions will be notified by 30 November 2020.
Submissions from three primary schools and three secondary schools will be selected for inclusion in Curiocity Brisbane 2021.
If we are selected, what then?
In Term 1 in 2021, Curiocity Brisbane will send a Professional Maker (Artist, Coder, Fabricator, etc) to your school to help students create the installation. (Timing of this visit will be confirmed with the successful schools.)
Curiocity Brisbane will fund the materials to help make the installation.
The installations will then be on display outdoors in Brisbane from 12 to 28 March 2021.
