National Science Week 2021
We hope you find some inspiration in our food-related articles and book posts to go with this year’s National Science Week theme, Food – different by design.
We are also hosting a range of exciting online events including a simultaneous morning tea, the Inspire STEM series – Food different by design and two STEM Hours: Exploring Bush Tucker and Food for thought – philosophical inquiry with children. Be sure to check them out.
One of our wonderful Local Network Partners up in North Queensland, Jim Callan, contacted me the other day to talk about a new STEM exploration called floating oranges.
