Look out for posters in shopping centres and at Perth Airport that explain your evolution, guess which image comes from inside a cell or space, ponder the power of plants and find amazing similarities between Uranus and your anus.
“Our science posters aim to inspire people towards a curiosity and amazement about science, all in the comfort of their own cubicle,” says Alice Trend, Science Communications Officer at the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology.
The posters all share colourful scientific facts on the theme ‘From plants to planets, science is amazing’.
“Australia really is a clever country and we want to spark more of an interest in the incredible work our scientists are conducting in a wide variety of fields,” says Kirsten Gottschalk, Outreach and Education Officer at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR).
The posters are a collaboration between science communicators from the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology and ICRAR.
National Science Week runs from August 11-19 and you can get involved in many great events.
If you would like exciting science posters to jazz up your school or business for National Science Week, you can download and distribute copies and images from here.
The initiative is supported by the Australian Government and The University of Western Australia as part of National Science Week.
