National Science Week – 12 to 20 August 2017

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. It features more than 1 000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres.

If you are considering a science career, or your children have an interest in science, National Science Week is a great opportunity to explore this interest further.

The Perth Science Festival will kick off events here in Western Australia, running Saturday 12 August to Sunday 13 August, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Perth Cultural Centre. You can also follow the Perth Science Festival on Facebook and Instagram to see the ‘best of the ‛fest’! For a full list of events near you, visit the National Science Week events page.
