Science in the Wild- Dinosaurs vs Superpowers

Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, or Cat woman - we all know about their fantastic strength and abilities. But did you know you can find fantastic superpowers right here in the Australian Botanic Garden? Join our scientists at their stalls and they will show what amazing superpowers you find in nature. Super sight, super hearing, super strength and camouflage are only some of the capabilities you will discover. The incredible roving Dinosaur will be coming back as well and show you a bit of pre-historic fauna.

Be sure to put on your cape and dress up as your favourite superhero for this great event.
