Description

What will your Future Earth look like?

Come and celebrate the launch of National Science Week and discover what your Future Earth might look like and what you can do to make our planet better for future generations.


We are filling the National Sound and Film Archive with a number of hands-on exhibits, workshops and talks to get you thinking about your Future Earth. You’ll be able to:

  • Create your own weather jar with ABC breakfast weather presenter Nate Byrne

  • Code a robot

  • Taste crickets, the food of the future

  • Learn how to reduce your waste

  • Try out some virtual reality goggles

  • Build a wind generator

  • See artworks from local Canberra primary schools about what they think their Future Earth might look like.

  • ...and much more!


Plus, hear from amazing young scientists paving the way forward, including:

  • Francesca Maclean is ACT Young Woman of the Year 2017 due to her work in fighting for gender equality in STEM through founding Fifty50. She has recently completed her PhD at the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Finally, ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr will announce the ACT Scientist of the Year.

Canapes will be provided and a cash bar will be available for refreshments.
