We are delighted to be bringing the National Science Week program together for Victoria this year, and warmly invite everyone interested in being a part of this state-wide celebration of all things Science to come along to our information and networking session here at the Society.
Joining us will be the Victorian Minister for Trade, Innovation & the Digital Economy, Philip Dalidakis MP, Victoria’s Lead Scientist, Dr Amanda Caples and Questacon’s acting Director of Science and Learning, Dr Bobby Cerini. The Minister will be launching the broader Inspiring Australia program for the state, and we’ll be discussing opportunities for our communities to engage.
Our focus on the day will be on National Science Week (11 -19 August), providing some examples of planned events, hearing from the Victorian Science Week Lead Dr Renee Beale on small grants and how to get involved, and an opportunity to network with colleagues (including the National Science Week Manager, Geoff Crane) over morning tea at the Royal Society of Victoria.
If you’re thinking about hosting or supporting a Science Week event, or just want to know more about the Inspiring Australia program in Victoria, please register to join us!
