Matthew Flinders Anglican College on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland is hosting a Community Panel Discussion event on Monday, 14 August from 3:30pm to 4:30pm to celebrate National Science Week.

The event is open to secondary students, teachers and parents across the Sunshine Coast. Book your free tickets online.

The event features five leading researchers and doctoral students from the University of Queensland and the University of the Sunshine Coast who will share their cutting-edge science and health research, and answer questions about their varied career pathways in their chosen fields.

This is a great opportunity for secondary students and parents to learn more about future pathways in Science and can help inform opportunities about Senior subject selection.

The panellists are exploring diverse research projects – from galaxies and dark energy, to nutrition science and paediatric wellbeing, the impact of toxins on germ cells, the future of water sensitive urban design, countering blue screen impact on macular degeneration, and fighting dementia and chronic illness through exercise.

Head of the Flinders Discovery Institute, Dr Louise McCuaig said, “Flinders is hosting this National Science Week panel event because we want students across the Sunshine Coast to meet leading scientists face-to-face and be inspired by their grit, creativity, intelligence and determination to help make the world a better place.

“It’s rewarding to offer students authentic opportunities to explore, debate and critically reflect on the personal and professional journeys of these outstanding visiting role models,” Dr McCuaig said.
