National Science Week 2023

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. In Tasmania, this is more like science month! In a typical year, there are 80-100 public events and almost every school has events on top of that.

Tasmania enjoys all types of events and activities, big and small. Young Tassie Scientists will be touring Tasmania, visiting schools and community groups, to share their love of science. Larger events this year include the Festival of Bright Ideas and Beaker Street Festival. The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, the HIVE and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery also celebrate Science Week with a suite of events each year.

There are events taking place all around the state, from Bruny Island to Circular Head!
