14-22 August is National Science Week and I encourage residents in our community to get involved in a local event where possible.
In 2021 there will be online events, virtual tours and experiences, DIY science and home-based activities held all around Australia. And there are some in-person events planned in line with local pandemic restrictions.
In Dickson and on the northside, these events are being held:
Dayboro Community Hall
6 Bradley Street, Dayboro QLD 4521, Australia
- – (AEST)
Downfall Creek Bushland Centre
815 Rode Road, Chermside West QLD 4032, Australia
395 Hamilton Road, Chermside QLD 4032, Australia
First held in 1997, National Science Week has become one of Australia’s largest festivals. Last year about 1.1 million people participated in more than 1200 events, despite a global pandemic.
National Science Week is proudly supported by the Australian Government; and partners CSIRO, the Australian Science Teachers Association, the ABC and Cosmos magazine.
The Morrison Government invested a record $11.9 billion in science, research and innovation in 2020/21, recognising its importance to Australia’s economy and our future.
