Science Week 2021

For Science Week this year, we have a galaxy of online activities you can take part in to become a citizen scientist!
National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology.

Running each year in August, it features more than 1000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums, and science centres.

We have a whole list of science experiments and activities you can do at home to celebrate Science Week, and most activities just require household items.

If you have curious young minds at home who are always asking 'why' get them into some backyard science with one of the activities below!
