Fresh Science will be held for the first time in the ACT on 10 July & 11 July 2018

The ACT Fresh Scientists will undertake a day of media and communication training at the Canberra Innovation Network on Tuesday 10 July, and will then have the chance pitch their science to business and government at the Canberra Innovation Network on Wednesday 11 July.

Join us at the pub night

On the night of 11 July, join a crowd of science enthusiasts to hear these leading early-career researchers share the stories in their science.

In the past we’ve heard about smart bandages, the sawfish saw, printable solar cells, wallabies’ immune tricks, ocean arteries, backward planets and more.

This year’s Fresh Scientists with reveal their discoveries using rhyme, reason and the odd firework.

The Pub night will be held at the the iconic King O’Malley’s Irish Pub, 131 City Walk, Canberra.
