Queensland Government precinct – Advance Queensland on show at Ekka

Visit the Ekka between Friday 5 and Sunday 14 August and see how Queensland is fast becoming the innovative state at the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland showcase. You’ll have the opportunity to learn how cutting edge technologies in science, education, agriculture, transport and renewable energy are helping to make Queensland a safer, more sustainable and exciting place to live, work and play.

Build your own robot, see walking, talking robots up-close and discover the world of coding. Take a 3D adventure with the latest virtual reality technology and challenge your friends to a video game.

Look into the future of sustainable driving with a fully functioning solar powered car, then help plan and design a city of the future. Learn how transport technology is improving road safety, and how flying drones are helping our rural farming community manage crops.

Ever wondered what working in aerospace involves? Try on the uniform and see how it suits you.
