With Science Week 2014 almost here, how will you get involved?
Every year in August, over one million Australians celebrate the fascinating field of science and technology. From 16th – 24th August 2014 Australia’s National Science Week aims to promote and encourage interest science, engineering, technology and innovation through more than 1000 events being held across the country.
