National Science Week, August 14 - 21 2021, is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology.
This celebration aims to raise the profile and increase the public understanding and public appreciation of science, innovation, engineering and technology, and their role in maintaining and improving our society, economy and environment.
To celebrate National Science Week, we've put together a free DIY science experiment that can be completed at home with some basic household items.
HMRI cancer researcher Dr Michelle Wong-Brown leads us through how you can extract DNA from a strawberry.
