STEAM Club Presents National Science Week
12-16 August 2019
Ages 10-15
Success Library

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. These events attract a wide audience from children to adults, and science amateurs to professionals. Over one million people participate in science events across the nation.

Established in 1997, National Science Week provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists to the world of knowledge. It also aims to encourage an interest in science pursuits among the general public, and to encourage younger people to be fascinated by the world we live in.

This year Cockburn Libraries is celebrating National Science Week with STEAM Presents National Science Week, daily events running through National Science Week 12-16 August 2019. We will celebrate STEAM with a range of events: Stop Motion, Music Makers, Engineering Extravaganza, Scribble Bots, and an Edison Robot Workshop.
