7.00pm-8.30pm The Big Snapshot of Australian Science Engagement

How are we engaging people with science in Australia, and how do we do
it better?

The ASC with Bridge8 and Econnect are creating a high definition picture
of Australian science engagement. This is your chance to contribute
right at the start.

The new project is funded by the Australian government's Inspiring
Australia Strategy to gather information about the who, what, where,
when, why and how we communicate science.

It will be a fast paced session, led by Kristin Alford, Founding
Director of Bridge8. Your input and ideas will help shape a forthcoming
national survey of science engagement activities.


This event is generously supported by Perth Zoo.
