Western Australia

Fresh Science WA was held on 9 October 2019 in Perth. 

Ten Fresh Scientists took to the stage and explained their work in the time it takes a birthday sparkler to burn out.

We heard how seed spaghetti is saving native plants; how we’re mapping the Milky Way’s magnetic field and why; and the role of monitor lizards on former mine sites.

From satellite signals to the surface of plant leaves; people came along and enjoyed dinner, a drink and caught some of the latest science with researchers from UWA, Murdoch, Curtin, CSIRO and Kings Park.

The WA Fresh Scientists undertook media and communication training at Western Australian Museum in Fremantle on 8 & 9 October.
