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 – investigate the properties of a range of chemicals.
  • Attend researcher presentations – meet the scientists behind the headlines.
  • Challenge yourself with open-ended investigations – design and perform your own magnetic experiment to remove oil slicks from marine environments and receive further instructions to continue your investigations.

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.
