Tasmanians, interested in knowing more about National Science Week?

Tasmania

The exploration, discovery and excitement that is National Science Week is back with another amazing state-wide program planned for 2015.

Find out more by coming along to the Hobart or Launceston National Science Week Information Sessions, hosted by the Tasmanian Coordinating Committee. Our guest speaker is Geoff Crane, Manager of National Science Week, from Questacon in Canberra.

Geoff will provide a national perspective on National Science Week in 2015 and talk about links with the Inspiring Australia initiative – and there will also be the opportunity to find out what’s happening at a local level.
If you are planning on running an event during National Science Week, want to know what else is happening for schools and the wider community, or need more details about potential funding for activities, then this is the information session you can’t afford to miss!
