Science in your community - an Inspiring Australia initiative
Every year Scitech and ScienceNetwork WA promote a huge range of community science events.
Included in these are the more then 80 regional community science engagement events we'll support this year, involving 14,000 people from across Broome, Karratha, Geraldton, Bunbury, Albany, Esperance and Kalgoorlie.
These activities are organised by local science groups and enthusiasts and supported as part of Inspiring Australia, a national strategy for engagement with the sciences.
