National Science Week 2018 is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. Running each year in August, it features more than 1000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres. These events attract a wide audience from children to adults and science amateurs to professionals. Over one million people participate in science events across the nation. CBNS has four nodes contributing this year which is exciting.
This year, the UniSA node organises an exhibition with the Museum of Discovery (MOD) for local schools:
This event also provides a rare opportunity for students to speak with researchers (PhD students and early-career researchers) about what it is like to study and work in STEM, as well as visit the recently opened MOD.
Activities will include:
The event is also being supported by the Future Industries Institute and School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences at UniSA. A main partner for the event will be the Museum of Discovery (MOD) located in UniSA’s new Cancer Research Institute.
