A unique chance to go behind the scenes of Australia's premier research agency, CSIRO. In this program, you will:

  • Visit CSIRO research laboratories – see the latest research in action.
  • Participate in discrete lab experiences – explore the science of good health and consider how this would affect space travel.
  • Attend researcher presentations – meet the scientists behind the headlines.
  • Challenge yourself with open-ended investigations – design, prototype, and test if your spacecraft can keep an astronaut safe and maintain communications while travelling on a mission.

Places are limited.

For more information, go to the CSIRO website, phone 1300 136 376 (cost of a local call) or email education@csiro.au

We look forward to seeing you in April.

Regards, CSIRO Education and Outreach.
