National Science Week

Ready, set: science. National Science Week puts Australia at the front of the science and technology race with this national event.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Founded in 1997, National Science Week is Australia’s biggest celebration of science and technology. Come August, it features thousands of events across Australia, from universities to research organisations, schools, museums, libraries and science centres. It’s science, supersized – over a million Aussies take part in science events across the nation.

In Western Australia, we see hundreds of registered events each year, covering all corners of the state. Events include large festivals, workshops and presentations including the Perth Science Festival delivered by Scitech.

Get curious with hands-on activities, explosive chemistry shows, native animals and much more. From Albany in the Great Southern region to Broome in the Kimberley, National Science Week will inspire the next generation of instigators and innovators.

  • Small grants are available through the Western Australian Coordinating Committee for National Science Week, to assist individuals or organisations who wish to host an event.
  • National Science Week is delivered by Inspiring Australia– an Australian Government Initiative to help build engagement and participation in STEM.

It’s science on a grand scale, an event simply not to be missed.

Do you want to get involved?

There are many ways to get involved each year – from hosting your own STEM-related event to attending the unique programming on offer across WA.
