National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology, due to be held this year from August 12-20. With more than 1000 events around Australia, there’s something to challenge, inspire and capture the imaginations of Australians from all walks of life. Proudly sponsored by Cosmos, the events and exhibitions are expected to attract over 1 million participants across the nation. So how can you get involved?

What better time than National Science Week to visit your local museum or science discovery centre? Many institutions will be holding special activities or events to mark the occasion.
National Science Week is made possible by many volunteers that give up their time to help run the show. With a coordinating committee in every state and territory, there’s plenty of opportunities to get involved. Contact your local committee to find out how you can be a part of it.
