Wollongong-based Science Space has flipped its plans for National Science Week due to the current lockdown and is looking forward to engaging scientists—young and old—with virtual, interactive fun. Have fun with Dr Karl in an extended, live Q&A session or attend one of dozens of online science shows and workshops.
Ask Dr Karl
As part of Inspiring Australia’s Science Week, the University of Wollongong’s Science Space is pleased to bring you Dr Karl from the University of Sydney!
Join a virtual Q&A with Dr Karl. This icon of science will present the answers to your burning questions from why bees buzz to why the sky is blue!
Hosted by Science Space’s very own Dr Joh, we will put your questions to Dr Karl during 90 mins of live Zoom Webinar starting off with a show to get things rolling. Dr Karl will choose a few of his favourite questions, and if your question is among them, you will receive a signed copy of Dr Karl’s latest book!
Places are limited so booking your FREE place is essential and to get your question to Dr Karl! 6pm, Monday 16 August. Register to attend
