Science Festival is back for 2019!
Science Festival is the University’s annual celebration of STEMM knowledge, innovation and progress. The theme this year is “Global problems: Science Solutions” and we are reaching out to work with you to develop an amazing series of events.
Co-ordinated by the Faculty of Science and running annually during National Science Week, Science Festival this year is the week of Monday 12 August – Friday 16 August.
The festival aims to inspire students who are studying science, as well as students from other disciplines who have an untapped passion for science. It is also a chance to engage the public, alumni and industry partners and celebrate science, and the work of scientists, at the University and around the world.
Last year Science Festival had 31 free events and activities, with over 2,800 participants from the public, students, prospective students, alumni and industry. Events were run by every STEMM division at the University, and several biomedical institutes, which was a wonderful display of interdisciplinary collaboration.
To get things moving, we are holding an information session next week on Tuesday 4 June at 10am in the Old Geology level 1 conference room (at the top of the stairs).
Please come along to find out what we are planning and how you can be involved. The session will cover what the festival is, how you can run an event, and the planning timelines for the festival.
I hope to see you there.
