National Science Week celebrations

Congratulations to Ashleigh Westmoreland and Nicole Chanson who represented SMT on Monday at Indooroopilly State School’s National Science Week celebrations. SMT is proud to celebrate National Science Week by engaging our students in many additional and exciting activities this week!

The theme for National Science Week in 2018 is Game Changers and Change Makers. This could refer to individuals, teams, technologies or ideas – what does it suggest to you?

In developing the theme, the committee for National Science Week took inspiration from three significant celebrations in 2018:

  • 200th  anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (genetic engineering, biotechnologies, prosthetics, bionics, genetic modification, brain enhancement and ethics);
  • 40th anniversary of the birth of the first IVF baby (genetic engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology);
  • International Year of the Reef (coral reefs and the scientists who study them).
