Nominate yourself for Fresh Science 2015. Nominations are open now and close 25 June.
Meet this year’s Fresh Scientists from Victoria, North Queensland and Western Australia over a beer at the pub or attend a school forum. Events in: Melbourne 28/29 July, Townsville 3 August, Brisbane 17* August and Perth 19 or 20* August.
For 18 years Fresh Science has been helping young Australian scientists find their story and their voice, and empowering these future leaders of science to engage with the community, media, government and industry.
Since 1997 Fresh Science has trained more than 250 early-career scientists how to present their science in a way that’s accessible to a general audience.
We believe it’s essential that the new generation of young scientists reach out and engage:
- exciting Australians with their research and its impact
- learning how to reach out to governments and businesses
- encouraging informed, evidence-based discussion of the big issues – from vaccines to climate change; and
- providing role models for school and university students.
In 2015 we are bringing Fresh Science to every State and Territory where we have secured local support to host the program.
