Science: Learning Camouflaged!

What is National Science Week and who is it for?

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology and thousands of individuals – from students, to scientists to chefs and musicians – get involved, taking part in more than 1000 science events across the nation.

Science Week is designed for everyone – it’s definitely not restricted to schools and universities – with events and activities and talks and shows for every age group.

Running each year in August, over one million people participate in science events across the nation.

Established in 1997, National Science Week provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists to the world of knowledge. It also aims to encourage an interest in science pursuits among the general public, and to encourage younger people to be fascinated by the world we live in.


What is happening in the library for National Science Week?

Science can be so much fun. Kids love experiments and they don't even realise they are learning! They get to be hands-on and creative to make things move, change and sometimes even explode. What's not to love?

Nearly all of our library branches are doing something for this special week to ignite a curiosity and interest in space, robotics and technology.
