Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
Fresh Science 2016 was held in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland and NSW.
Fresh Science nominations for 2017 will open in July and we intend to run the events in November.
