Description

The Science Alive! Careers Day will be really fabulous in 2017. Free and open to all students from Years 7-12, this year will feature brand new science shows and will welcome special presenter Prof Rick Shine, the most recent winner of the Prime Minister's Prize for Science for his cutting edge research which has saved many of NT's native species from the cane toad invasion. There will also be exhibits and activities from Questacon in Canberra (see their 'Science on the Move' and 'Fascinating Science' travelling exhibitions at www.questacon.edu.au/outreach/travelling-exhibitions ) and a wide range of new exhibitors and activities. Expect plenty of action in the Flinders University/Royal Australian Chemical Institute Chemistry Shows and the on-stage short career presentations will aim to highlight the diversity of science and engineering careers. There will be strong representation from the resource and defence industries along with a focus on environmental science, medical research, forensic science, engineering, astronomy, robotics and electronics.

Most importantly there will be many activities for students to DO, not just look at.

This year we will again have a special lounge area in the Goyder mezzanine for Year 11 and 12 students to mix informally with a range of our science ambassadors who are generally early career scientists and engineers working in large organizations. The three universities and TAFESA will also be giving special presentations regarding science study pathways in the Year 11/12 area. Special lanyards will be issued to these senior students on arrival.

This will be the TWELTH anniversary of Science Alive! and we are expecting even more than the 6,000 students from 80 high schools that attended last year.

The event will be spread over the 17,500 sq m of the Goyder Pavilion, Duncan Gallery and Jubilee Pavilion so there is capacity to cater for many more students this year. However, while we don't expect to have to cap numbers it is best to REGISTER NOW to guarantee the involvement of your students. You only need to register ONE ticket for your whole school or class - the registration process will then ask you several questions about your school, number of students, their year level and your expected time of arrival and departure.

Don't hesitate to contact Event Coordinator, Brian Haddy at bhaddy@ozemail.com.au or ph 0413 156 172 if you have any queries. All registrants will receive further information well prior to the event.
