The Big Snapshot of Australian Science Engagement – Brisbane Event

How are we engaging people with science in Australia, and how do we do it better?

The ASC with Bridge8 and Econnect Communication are creating a high definition picture of Australian science engagement. This is your chance to contribute right at the start.

The new project is funded by the Australian government’s Inspiring Australia Strategy to gather information about the who, what, where, when, why and how we communicate science.

It will be a fast paced session, led by Jenni Metcalfe, Director of Econnect Communication. Your input and ideas will help shape a forthcoming national survey of science engagement activities.

Learn more about the project.

When: Tuesday 22 May, 7-8:30pm, right after Science-connect – social media workshop
Where: The Story Bridge Hotel, Kangaroo Point
Entry: Free. Drinks and finger foods provided
