National Science Week

From the 13th – 21st August it is National Science Week. All over Australia people are celebrating the wonders of science and acknowledging the work Australian scientists have done in contributing to the world’s knowledge.

This event isn’t just for scientists, there are events for everyone young and old! The National Science Week Events page lets you search by your own location and there are even events online. Why not Journey into the Deep or get hands on with science?

At QUT Library this week we have a lot of events going on for National Science Week so make sure you pop in and say hi to our friendly staff!

For more information about what is going on this National Science week have a look at @Aus_ScienceWeek.

And remember, whatever scientific things you get up this week don’t forget to let us know @qutlibrary and #natsciwk. So go forth and prosper this Science Week!

If you want to brush up on your maths skills or need a little help with science or IT concepts for your studies you can come along to one of the STIMulate drop-in sessions. Peer Learning Facilitators (that means your fellow students) are available for one-to-one support. The STIMulate Blackboard site has many useful resources as well.
