Kids look into a future in science
LUKE and Zoe may have been peering down into a seemingly never ending vortex, but for the scientists behind the Shell Questacon Science Circus, they hope they might just be staring at a new career.
More than 500 eager kids flooded the Grafton Sports Centre to see the roadshow, run by Australian
National University science communications Masters students.
The floor manager said it was about making science exciting.
“The idea is to make it hands-on science, and make it accessible to everyone,” she said.
“There’s a bit of science in everything from cooking and cleaning, and we’re hoping that their access to this is another step on the path to making these kids our next scientists.”
