Murdoch Uni Supporting National Science Week in WA

National Office

Murdoch University is proud to again be a major sponsor of WA’s National Science Week. Along with a presence at Moonboorli (Beyond), WA’s premier event for 2019, the Murdoch University Outreach team is gearing up for a month of explosive school engagements and community events so good it’s criminal.

Headlining Murdoch’s National Science Week is Science Behind Bars at the historic Fremantle Prison with tickets to both evenings, all ages and 18+, already SOLD OUT. Participants will be a detective for the evening, using a range of ‘real life’ forensic science techniques to solve a fictional crime.

The Ultimate Science Showdown returns on August 13, to pit unsuspecting scientists against a game-show style competition filled with nefarious questions about life, the universe, and more or less everything. This event for all ages will see expert career scientists face off against a team of plucky science undergrads… or should that be underdogs? Tickets limited, book now via Eventbrite.

The famous Live and Explosive science show is also touring throughout Perth across August, with shows at high schools, the Perth Children’s Hospital and this year’s Perth Science Festival.

On top of all this, to celebrate the Year of the Periodic Table, Outreach has been heading to local high schools to create art pieces based on different elements. On August 9 students will be showcasing their Periodic Table Art project at Murdoch University, alongside the Soil Science Chemistry Experiment Program posters. The event will be open to the public.

For more info on the above events, please email or find the events on the National Science Week website. Wanting to learn more about where your scientific mind can take you? Attend Murdoch University’s Science Open Night on August 14; register now via Eventbrite.
