The lead up to May stirs strong memories for us. Before becoming the ASC presidents, our April and May would be filled with hundreds (if not thousands) of messages, emails, meetings and volunteers preparing for the Pint of Science festival. This year, although not filled with Pints, our personal lives have exploded with house moves, […]
The months are flying fast! We’re definitely looking forward to our Easter break.

We wish to start our message by first acknowledging the devastating floods happening in South-East Queensland. Personally, we know of at least one person in our community who has had significant loss already, and suspect many more will be impacted. We hope that you are all safe. Our thoughts are also with any members who […]

We hope that you all found the recent symposium valuable. Personally, we both were inspired and impressed […]

The last session of the day (before David hosted ‘science cocktails’, which in a face-to-face situation may well have become their own ‘session’!) was titled ‘Mirofestos’: crowdsourcing ideas from highly-opinionated people. This […]
To make sure that we are all still able to connect, this year’s conference social event will be an online pub-less trivia, presented with the help of Pint of Science Australia.
It will be a fast-paced and fun
networking trivia event that you won’t want to miss, so make sure to join at
6:30 pm AEDT / 6:00 […]
