Scientist Q & A

Scientist Q & A

An optional 30-minute discovery session where students can ask their own questions

Often students attend our science workshops and shows with questions that stem beyond the covered topic area. Ask a scientist aims to give students a chance to get their questions answered! This is a highly open-ended conversation, where student’s questions drive the content presented. As such the topics can include:

  • How do you become a scientist?
  • What do scientists actually do?
  • What opportunities are there for someone who studies science?
  • I want to know about…. (insert topic here!)

Rather than trying to cram these questions into the end of a given workshop, this format allows students to get a deeper understanding of why STEM is so important and how every industry is influenced by discoveries and research. Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!
