August 15, 2022

From August 13-21, there are in-person and online events, virtual tours, DIY science and more, across Australia.

National Science Week has grown into one of Australia’s biggest festivals since its first edition in 1997.

In 2021, despite a global pandemic, 1.3 million people participated in over 1,750 events and activities.

This year, activities and events are taking place across Australia and range from a record-breaking rocket launch in Queensland to Beer Science in Tasmania, and even an inflatable ‘poop palace’ in the Hunter Valley.

There are hundreds of online opportunities and activities and in-person events, with organizers aware of the need for COVID safety.
