National Office

Thursday, 20 August 2015 Queensland Museum, South Bank

Do you think science is innately sexy, needs a make-over, or is ‘sexy’ a derogative term for a pursuit of knowledge? Join us during National Science Week as Queensland Museum hosts a Q&A event that explores the appeal of science and its relevance to our everyday lives.

Decide where you stand as ABC’s Paul Barclay asks these questions and more in a live broadcast for Radio National’s Big Ideas program.
