Take a tour of the state-of-the-art Science Exchange building, once Adelaide’s Stock Exchange and now Australia’s new home for science, and join Baroness Susan Greenfield for an overview of the developing mind, the conscious mind and the degenerating mind, and how we are trying to maximise its potential in the 21st century.

Sunday – Lift off to science: Family Fun Day
Join the RiAus to celebrate with a Time and Space themed day that’s fun for all the family.
