Hi everyone

The Canberrans among you might like to come along to some of these National Science Week 'fringe' events at the Front Café and Gallery at Lyneham shops (next to Tilleys). 

As well as the timetabled events, there's live music every night (Wed-Mon) till late so it's a good 'after party' venue if you go to other science week events. Feel free to spread this information around to others.
