The “From Research to Reality” TV series

National Office

Queensland’s science and innovation sector is at the forefront of discovery.  From developing a digital system that allows police investigators in the field and scientists in the police lab to share evidence as it comes to hand (just like in the movies) to QUT researchers implementing new surgical techniques.

Yet few people know about these great innovations.

We think people should know about them – particularly young people who might be thinking about a future in science and technology.

In an alliance with several episode sponsors, National Science Week invested in a documentary series which was broadcast on 31Digital (community TV) to promote Queensland’s achievements and promote public interest in science and technology. The 30 minute videos are available on 31’s YouTube Channel, and they were a way to support the creation of new businesses, new industries and new jobs.

Each episode was introduced by Dr Geoff Garrett, the Queensland Chief Scientist.
