Science Week 2018

The school 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 and the teaching resource book we 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.

Teaching Resource Book

The 88 page Game Changers and Change Makers Teaching Resource Book is now available from the Australian Science teachers Association as a free interactive online book and a PDF to download and print.

Get Involved

There are a variety of ways you can get your students, class, year level, school and community involved in National Science Week.

Your participation can be as simple as a display in the school library, or as complex as a whole-school science fair. A National Science Week event should:

  • be fun for the participants
  • be focused on quality science outcomes
  • be supportive of your science curriculum
  • encourage the participants to want to try more science
  • raise the general profile of science within the community.

A poster and other information about Science Week is posted to every preschool, primary school, high school and TAFE in Australia each year, usually around the start of Term 2.
