Despite a steepish learning curve, Hunter Innovation and Science Hub members have been working hard to prepare for their region’s National Science Week being completely online. With new relationships developed with several organisations, this year’s celebrations in the Hunter will include virtual workshops, lectures, competitions, and online activities.
Among programs on offer are the e-poster comp run by the National Schools Poster Competition and the Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival’s mini solar car building competition that you can do at home with the fastest races to be filmed, shared and cheered online.
Other highlights include:
- The Moon Village Assoc. & Office of Other Spaces will present an international webinar about conferring “legal personhood” to the moon
- KiDE Science is running an online live STEAM class for ages 3-10
- Curious Cubs are asking children to design a marine creature
- The Hunter Region Botanic Gardens will be compiling at-home botany experiments Tangaroa Blue is hosting a plastics workshop.
More events and details to come as they are finalised! Keep an eye here for updates.
With interest coming from new and unexpected partners, such as Girl Guides of Charlestown, Muswellbrook High School and families currently under isolation, the Hunter Innovation and Science Hub members look forward to celebrating National Science Week with you virtually.
