Dear Canberran ASCers,
Join us at the pub on Wednesday night to hear some of the ACT's top young researchers present their discoveries in the time it takes for a birthday sparkler to burn down.
It's Fresh Science ACT at King O'Malley's Irish Pub on Wednesday 11 July 6-8pm. It's free but please book<https://freshscienceact2018.eventbrite.com.au> your spot.
In other states we've heard about robotic stingrays; printing bones; and using genetics to predict eye infections.
We've learnt how to finesse wheelchairs for athletes; dissolve drugs; treat insomnia; and detect kidney disease with a wee test.
What have Canberra's Freshies discovered?
Fresh Science<http://www.freshscience.org.au> is a national competition that helps early-career researchers find and then share their stories of discovery. It's now in its 21st year and this is the first state event for the ACT.
Taking the bright sparks challenge is the pub version of the elevator pitch. After a day of talking with journalists, it's is a fun and light way for the Freshies to practice the art of quickly engaging an audience.
Fresh Science takes up and coming researchers who have peer reviewed results or a discovery, gives them some media training and then gets their work into the public space.

  *   Register to hear this year's Fresh Science via: https://freshscienceact2018.eventbrite.com.au (It's a free event but we like to give the venue an idea of numbers)
  *   Share the event by sticking up a poster<http://freshscience.org.au/wp-content/uploads/FS18_PubPosters_ACT_HR.jpg> on your workplace noticeboard or in your lift.
