In August each year, our communities come together to celebrate Australian science and technology at National Science Week.
During this time, more than 1000 STEM activities and events take place across the nation at a wide range of venues, including many schools.
This year National Science Week is running 12 to 20 August. The 2023 school theme is ‘Innovation: Powering Future Industries’. The theme looks at technology advancements in all industries, especially artificial intelligence.
2022 National Science Week school grant recipients participated in the theme ‘Glass: More than meets the eye’. Some highlights:
- Students at Haasts Bluff School NT partipated in a week of glass themed activities, including a collaborative learning day attended by Papunya and Watiyawanu schools and communities.
- Students at Albuera Street Primary School TAS collaborated with a glass artist to collect glass bottles, beach glass and old mirrors to create a mosaic.
