Fresh Science is a national program training early-career science researchers to tell their stories of discovery to the media and public.
In 2015 we will be bringing Fresh Science to every State and Territory where we can secure local support to host the program. Last year, across Australia, more than 300 people gathered at pubs, museums and universities to hear our crop of FameLab Australia state finalists.
State finals will comprise a day of media and communication training followed by evening presentations at a local pub, at which the young scientists will try to explain their research in the time it takes a sparkler to burn out. In some states we’ll also be inviting the Fresh Scientists to speak with school groups the following day.
Fresh Science is in its 18th year. Over that time we’ve worked with dozens of great young scientists, trained them up on how to get their stories across, and then got their stories into the press. You can read about all of them in Fresh Science alumni.
