In his opening ceremony speech, Prof. T. Djamaluddin, the head of LAPAN, encouraged the audience and especially students to actively participate in any opportunity that could increase their knowledge and experience, both in nationally and internationally, such as the Try Zero-G event.

As the Festival was open to the public, hundreds of people including students, teachers and members of the general public came to LAPAN. Activities at the event included public speaking, storytelling, educational games and quizzes, as well as exhibitions.

The public speaking activity involved four speakers. The first speakers were Rhorom Priyatikantho, M.Si, and Ingrid Dewi Rucita Saragih, who discussed microgravity and Try Zero-G (Asian Try Zero-G 2016), followed by Dr. M.
