Fresh Science WA will be held on 26 June & 27 June 2018

The WA Fresh Scientists will undertake media and communication training at the Maritime Museum, Fremantle on 26 June.

Students are invited to our free schools forum

Then on 27 June, school students will be invited to a free, one-hour forum at the Maritime Museum, Fremantle, on to hear from our early-career Fresh Scientists as they describe their latest discoveries across a range of fields from botany and zoology to biotechnology, physics, medicine and engineering.

The talks are aimed at year 9 and 10 students, but students from upper primary up to year 12 are welcome.

Each scientist presents for five minutes and students have the chance to ask questions after each talk. We love the students’ questions!

School forums are free, but bookings are essential via the following link: museum.wa.gov.au/museums/maritime/fresh-science
