Welcome to Science in Practice 2020

Held in August each year, Science in Practice is a one-day event hosted by the University of Newcastle, Faculty of Science to coincide with Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology, National Science Week.

Developed and led by our world-class experts, we are offering a FREE online experience this year, delivering a virtual day of exciting, interactive activities and presentations for the whole community.

From live SMART Science shows to talks with some of our Mad Scientists, there is something for everyone to explore - right from the comfort of your very own home.

Enjoy!
