Three Flinders scientists have been accepted into Fresh Science this year and will present their research to a crowd of science enthusiasts at an evening event, following a warm-up earlier in the day where they will aim to engage 400 high-school students.
Fresh Science is a national competition that seeks to help early-career researchers share their stories of discovery, turning them into science communicators and providing a taste of the limelight at a public event.
Flinders’ Anh Tran Tam Pham, Dhara Amin and Nicole Lovato are among this year’s SA Fresh Scientists, who will undertake a day of media and communication training at the South Australian Museum on 12 June 2018.
A one-hour forum at the South Australian Museum will follow on 13 June, where the scientists will describe their latest discoveries to 400 high school students. The presenters will have five minutes to present their work and students will have the opportunity to ask questions. On that same evening, the scientists will present to a crowd of science enthusiasts at the Elephant British Pub.
Past Fresh Scientists have shared their research on smart bandages, printable solar cells, wallabies’ immune tricks, ocean arteries, backward planets and more; this year’s cohort are set to reveal their discoveries using rhyme, reason… and the odd firework.
All are welcome to attend the evening event and find out about emerging discoveries, while supporting the Flinders particpants.
Where: Elephant British Pub, 1 Cinema Pl, Adelaide
When: 6:00 – 8:00PM, Wednesday 13 June 2018
