Posted 25 October 2012 by System Administrator (Latest News)

The theme for next year's National Science Week (10-18 August 2013) is A Century of Australian Science

In 2013, Australia’s national capital, Canberra is celebrating its centenary. Canberra’s centenary will be a ‘springboard’ to celebrate the history, development and progress of scientific endeavour in Australia, from heroic explorations of the Antarctic to areas of cutting edge research such as nanotechnology and biotechnology and the recently awarded Square Kilometre Array for Western Australia.

A Century of Australian Science will provide the opportunity to celebrate the contribution of scientists from across our nation and to highlight the people, including a remarkable number of Nobel Prize winners whose research and discoveries have helped transform the way we live.
