6 Ways to celebrate National Science Week

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology and thousands of individuals – from students, to scientists to chefs and musicians.

This year’s program takes form virtually and we have curated a list of different ways you can celebrate science all week long from the comfort of your own home!

  1. Future Earth

Join dynamic and interactive webinars, podcasts and competitions to explore how far science has taken humanity.

Tune in to see some of Queensland’s most inspiring Citizen Science projects. From fungi to frogs, we’ll be greening it up right here in your very own backyard.

Join our curatorial team as they each talk about their specialised field and inspire curiosity to connect to the past, make sense of the present and help navigate the future. Get involved by joining our curatorial team by asking questions and sharing your own photos and videos with us by using the hashtag#CouchCurator.

Learn, interact, and play with Learning Lab. Enjoy cool videos, competitions, online science classes and virtual tours.

Whether you are interested in animals, archaeology, palaeontology, marine biology, trains, rocks and minerals, forces, space, gases or other science related topics there is something for everyone. Become a science explorer and see what you can find and have fun with these super cool free activities.

Get unprecedented access to more than 800,000 free resources across Queensland Museum Network through our digital learning platform. Check out videos of real-world STEM professionals, download resources for classroom learning, and be inspired by a range of engaging STEM-related activities and museum collection items.

Be sure to follow us on social media to see what we got up to last year and other fun nuggets of science as we celebrate all week long. To keep up to date look for #scienceweek and even share your own experiments from home.
