Projects need to be largely for general public audiences and must be held in National Science Week (12 – 20 August 2017), or in the week immediately before or after.
In 2016, 1.3 million Australians participated in over 1,700 Science Week events and online activities. And 3.2 million animals were identified in the national experiment, Wildlife Spotter.
