Celebrating Science Week online

As with many scheduled events running throughout 2020, this year’s National Science Week is moving online. Between 15 and 23 August, school students across Australia are encouraged to join universities, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres in holding their own Science Week activities.

Organisers say creativity and innovation are the keys to planning an event, with no restrictions on topic, audience, venue or format — the only criteria that must be met is the promotion and encouragement of interest in science, engineering, mathematics, technology and innovation.

Science Week events this year will be held online, and organisers will also share activity ideas for people to do at home or while exercising in their neighbourhood. The events calendar is full of competitions, do-at-home activities and other resources to help celebrate science.

For those looking for ideas, the ABC Education website’s Experiments page features a host of resources including science experiments suitable for students in Years 1 to 10. A short video of each experiment is accompanied by an outline of the key points to consider before, during and watching, as well as suggested next steps to further increase understanding.
