Australia's Biggest Science Festival goes on the road
The Australian Museum has a reputation for inspiring budding scientists as well as engaging students at all levels. Each event has exhibits, shows, workshops, talks and hands-on science activities for both primary and secondary school students.
The 2012 Australian Museum Science Festival saw almost 6,000 students, teachers, adults and children come and experience the wonders of science. These outstanding figures mean that this year has been the Australian Museum's most successful celebration of National Science Week to date.
All of this would have been impossible without the wonderful contribution from our amazing presenters, exhibitors, volunteers, Australian Museum volunteers and festival partners 3M, ANSTO, Charles Sturt University and Macquarie University.
