National Science Week (NSW) will be launched at the QVMAG on 15 August by the inaugural QVMAG Science Week Celebrity Dinner featuring national treasure, science journalist, author and broadcaster, Robyn Williams AM.

The following day, 16 August, QVMAG's BIG Day of Science begins with an industry breakfast exploring opportunities presented by Food Bowl, Farm Gate and Slow Food movements. It unfolds at the Museum, Inveresk with an action- packed program which includes: The Crazy Scientist: mind-blowing experiments and science magic for kids; a giant Paleontological Dig and Science Wonder Wall: sequence of science experiments with startling and amazing effects. 

There will also be Science PODS (Professionals Out-there Demonstrating Science) where you can talk with experts; as well as Talking Science Tours, tours of QVMAG's two sites, by volunteer science communicators. 

Now in its 14th year, National Science Week is expected to attract over one million people who will participate in science-based events across the nation during the 16 to 24 August program.
