Spotlight on Science

  • - (AEST)

Can artificial intelligence be used ethically? How are virtual worlds created? How do water quality and chemistry relate? Join us at Hornsby Library to celebrate National Science Week to tackle these questions and more. 

You will hear from a panel of three scientists from different fields. They will talk about the science that has inspired them, what the future holds, and their career path choices.

This event is suitable for students, emerging scientists, and anyone with an interest in science and technology.
