About this event

Join us for a beer with the hottest young scientists from Queensland as they go head to head in Fresh Science this October.

Last competition’s highlights included: weed-control robots, worms to conquer cancer, quantum gravity’s tangled time order, spider venom–pain relief and more. So, what’s #FreshSci this year?

Join us for QLD Fresh Science at Griffith University’s Nathan campus on Wednesday 20 October.

These up-and-coming scientists will describe their scientific discoveries in under 1 minute.

Who will you choose as the People’s Choice winner for 2021? Will the people agree with the judges?

Fresh Science Queensland is delivered by Science in Public in partnership with Econnect Communication. It is nationally sponsored by Defence Science, and is proudly supported in Queensland by Griffith University, The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, the University of the Sunshine Coast and the University of Southern Queensland.

Fresh Science is our national competition that helps early-career researchers find and then share their stories of discovery. The selected scientists get a day of media training and an industry pitching training session, and the chance to share their work with the media, general public and school students. Now in its 23rd year, Fresh Science has trained over 500 scientists to share their science, and generated hundreds of news stories via TV, print, radio and online. You can read past Fresh Scientists’ stories online.
