A little goes a long way for Tasmanian event holders during National Science Week

Following the announcement of the Australian Government funding for National Science Week events, the Tasmanian National Science Week Coordinating Committee have announced their seed grant winners with thanks to funding from Inspiring Australia. Sixteen events and activities received up to $500 each to support a community event this August.

Inspiring Australia (Tasmania) Manager Sarah Bayne moderated the seed grant decision making panel comprised of members of the Tasmanian National Science Week Coordinating Committee.

“The Tasmanian Science Week Committee had a tough job this year trying to decide which events to fund – we had so many worthy applications and are very pleased to be able to fund 16 events from around the state through this grant round. Science in so integral to our everyday lives and all Tasmanians will be able to participate in the excitement of Science Week this year.”

The Australian Science Teachers Association has also announced the winners of their grants to support school-only events. Seventeen Tasmanian schools were selected with many rural and regional locations represented.
