National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. Running from the 12- 22 of August this year, it features more than 1000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums, and science centres.
This years National Science Week theme is Food: Different by Design which covers a broad range of areas in food production and sustainable agriculture. This theme encourages children to explore topics such as biosecurity, food technology and laboratory-developed foods.
Whether you are interested in the theme or love other aspects of science, there are so many ways you and your little one can learn about science through hands on activities.
