Craft your own Science Event
Are you a community group looking to inform yourselves about an issue in your area?
Send us an email and we will look into the resources we can access for you.
Are you a school who would like to interest your students in science by running a festival, hosting a performance, inviting some lively speakers or spicing up your family science night? Invite someone from our Talent Search. Read stories and see images of past Inspiring Science Events to see what has worked and if it is a format that might work for you.
Perhaps you are a member of a self-help group and you would like to talk directly with key researchers working on your particular problem. Seek out an expert directly through our associated organisations such as CSIRO, The University of Melbourne's – Find an Expert service or The Royal Society of Victoria – whose members cover all scientific disciplines and are very keen to promote their science.
Are you a budding or established artist/performer who is working with scientific material? Send us your details and we'll consider including you and your work in our Talent Search. We are committed to helping scientists and their communities get together to learn from each other, and using whatever good communication tools we can to help the process.
If you have run an interesting, inspiring science event, make sure you photograph it, document it, review it and share the information with us all. We will upload it as one of our suggested or past Inspiring Science Events.
Check to see if you would be eligible to apply for support funds through our Invite a Scientist to Dinner program.
Contact us to discuss your ideas as we may be able to link you to other initiatives we know about and help you make it happen. As we aim to attract further sponsors for individual events, it is possible that we can match your event with an appropriate sponsor.
Community groups looking for help beyond what we are offering, can get loads of help, including information about applying for grants, at Our Community.
