The West Australian Coordinating Committee (WACC) extends its thanks to the 64 applicants who put forward incredible ideas for National Science Week activities in WA. The committee was impressed by the creativity and ingenuity of applicants, who reimagined event ideas to align with the digital nature of this year’s festivities.
Over $200 000 worth of funding requests were received, making it a very tough process deciding who would receive funding.
The committee awarded funds to these nine projects:
A Day @ DNA Zoo
DNA Zoo Australia (UWA) and BioBarcode Australia
3D Printing Workshops for New Inventors
East Manjimup Primary School
Dr Magda’s Chemistry Zoom Party!
