Local Scientists Wanted

Local Scientists Wanted

Are you a budding scientist, with an idea which could be the next big thing?

Organisations and individuals on the Northern Beaches with ideas for exciting National Science Week events for next year are being encouraged to apply for a grant to make their idea a reality.

Member for Mackellar, Jason Falinski MP said preparations for next year’s annual festival of science are now underway, with grants of up to $20,000 available for those who are ready to inspire Australia’s next generation of big picture thinkers.

“The idea is to make science fun and accessible to everyone and I urge qualified local people with good ideas to put them forward for grants,” Mr Falinski said.

“Successful grant applications will mean that you can have a positive impact on your community and set an example for others. Let’s get involved and show what the Northern Beaches can do!”

“This year’s event organisers showed incredible ingenuity in delivering their events online due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was great to see people from all over the country come together to participate in virtual tours, online events and DIY science and citizen science projects.”

National Science Week will run from 14 - 22 August 2021 and is Australia’s largest festival with over a million people participating in thousands of events each year.

Applications for 2021 National Science Week grants are now open, and close on 28 October 2020.
