National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. This year’s festival runs from 13 to 21 August, with thousands of events around Australia.
The festival has something for everyone, from children to adults, and science amateurs to professionals. Events are delivered by a wide range of institutions, including universities, schools, research organisations, libraries, museums and science centres. In past years, over one million people have participated in National Science Week events.
Since its establishment in 1997, National Science Week has provided an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists to the world of knowledge. It also aims to encourage an interest in science pursuits among the general public, and to encourage younger people to be fascinated by the world we live in.
