GrantWritingTalk

Talking grant writing at the Planetarium

On 18 September, members were given another opportunity to superpower their sci-comm skills with a whip-around in the world of Grants and Funding, including a behind the scenes of the Scitech Planetarium upgrade. We joined Jeff Harris [Scitech Planetarium], Emma Veenema [Office of Science, WA Government] and Cass Rowles [Roaming Reptile Education] to discuss the How-To’s of Grants and Funding, and then took a jaw-dropping  journey through the possibilities that the Lotterywest-funded Planetarium upgrades now provide.
