Flinders hosts inspirational lecture

Professor Sarah Harmer

In early September, Flinders University played host to the 2022 Claire Corani Women in Physics lecture, run by the Women in Physics group of the Australian Institute of Physics (AIP). This year’s lecture, organised by Professor Sarah Harmer, from the College of Science and Engineering, was presented by Associate Professor Katarina Miljkovic from Curtin University. Associate Professor Miljkovic took attendees on a journey around the solar system and followed a meteorite’s collision with earth in her presentation Impacts! Rocks from Space Colliding with Planets.

High school students from Nazareth College, Kadina Harvest School, Hamilton Secondary College, Pembroke College and Willunga High School were able to join the presentation in person and online.
