The Festival of Bright Ideas (FOBI) sparks curious and creative minds to learn more about science and the world around them.

Focusing on innovative and inspiring aspects of STEM (science, engineering, technology, and mathematics), it provides an educational, aspirational, and family-friendly experience for Tasmanians.

As Tasmania’s premier National Science Week event since 2015, you can meet scientists, see science in action, immerse themselves in the wonderful world of science, explore sustainability initiatives for a better world, and find out how Tasmanians contribute to the advancement of society.

STEM disciplines will be the bridge that carries us towards a bright, solutions-focused and innovative future. Through collaboration with leading Tasmanian STEM professionals, academics, education providers, and community leaders, we seek to make that future accessible to everyone.
