Ignite your imagination during Science Week

Group of students in comic form to celebrate National Science Week 2022

Be ready to ignite your imagination during Science week

Science Week is Australiaโ€™s largest annual celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), held from 13 to 21 August 2022. This yearโ€™s theme is โ€˜Glass: More than meets the eyeโ€™.

Science Week encourages students to explore and discover the role glass plays in our lives, from using powerful telescopes to seeing stars and planets; discover new and unexpected ways glass is used to build a more sustainable future; participate in community field walks that form part of this yearโ€™s Sydneyโ€™s Science Trail.

National Science Week also acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first scientists, makers and innovators of this land. A number of events showcase Indigenous Knowledge systems containing a wealth of scientific information and contribute significantly to STEM research in Australia.ย 

Celebrate and explore Science Week activities this week at your school, your local library, or have a look at the National Science Week website to find out about more events in your region.
