In response to Australia's declining interest in science, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation sponsors Ologism, a science-based rock band, to improve science engagement. Using observations, peer-assisted informal interviews, and a case-control study we assessed Ologism's effectiveness in stimulating an interest in science during a live performance. We concluded that Ologism can stimulate scientific interest among attendees but alone cannot stimulate prolonged scientific engagement. However, in coordination with similar efforts, Ologism has the potential to engage Australians in science.
