The Storytelling of Science


A special public event will be held this Sunday, 2nd February, to celebrate the anniversaries of three of Australia’s most respected science communication organisations.

This year marks 60 years of the Australian Academy of Science, 50 years of the ABC Science unit, and 20 years of the Australian Science Communicators.

The ABC, the Australian Academy of Science, the Australian Science Communicators, and BrisScience are bringing Australia’s top scientists and communicators together to explore the storytelling of science.
