National Science Week is here! Break out your bicarb and vinegar, sift through your worm farm, stare at the sky or explore in the water.
There are more than 500 online events and competitions to get involved in! Think lego, photography, podcasts, panels, sea slugs, recycling, beer brewing, robotics, astronomy, seed science and more.
You can search here for an event (online or in-person) near you. (I’ll see some of you during the week for BOOKED OUT science-meets-literacy events at schools and libraries…YAY!)
If you’re a girl aged 10-14, check out Sunday’s FREE and ENTIRELY ONLINE Girls Day Out In STEM. You need to register for a ticket, and there’s still time to get involved. (I’m presenting a masterclass on science communication – maybe I’ll see you there?)
And while we’re talking science, I had a super time at Melville Library on Thursday night talking the history of computing with some IT fans… I LOVED IT!
Thanks to Raino and Dominique for taking such great care of me, and to Heather and Rebs for bringing all the fans!
Countdown to Aussie STEM Stars!
And we’re only two weeks away from the launch of the Aussie STEM Stars series…
I’ve been talking about Professor Fiona Wood all week in schools and libraries and I can’t wait for you all to be able to read her inspiring and uplifting story. It’s available now for pre-order in all good book stores.
