A project I've been busily working on recently with a talented group of gals*, involves the design + co-ordination of an event (an urban game) for this weekend's Ultimo Science Festival.
Titled CSI: Creative Science Investigation, the game involves an urban adventure through the streets and buildings around Ultimo, uncovering scientific clues and collecting technological data that ultimately leads to the answers behind one of the greatest science projects ever ventured.
Here's a few of the important details:
When: Saturday, 29th August 2009
Where: Along Harris St, Ultimo
Tickets: There is no charge to play the game.
Register: To register (and for further info) email firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also register on the day in the foyer of the ABC building at 700 Harris St, Sydney.
Time: The game can be played from first registration at 12 noon until the last registration at 3pm.
How long?: The game takes approximately one hour to play.
What to bring: Your mobile phone and a digital camera will both help you throughout the game (but are not absolutely essential).
Is it multiplayer?: The game is best played in teams of 2-4 people, but can be played singularly as well. Definitely bring your friends and family along.
So if you're in Sydney and would like to take part in the CSI: Creative Science Investigation game on Saturday, then please go ahead and email the address above to register, or just turn up on Saturday afternoon between 12 and 3pm.
More details about the CSI game and indeed the whole Ultimo Science Festival can be found over here at the USF website:
Hope to see you there on Saturday. Did I mention there are prizes to be won at the end of the game, and free chocolates as you go? Truly.
