Science and technology groups in the south west are invited to submit creative ideas, exciting events and innovative projects for National Science Week 2019.

Member for Forrest, Nola Marino, said the Coalition Government is again offering National Science Week grants of between $2,000 and $20,000 to support a range of science engagement events and activities held across the country.

“Individuals, community groups, universities and other organisations interested in holding an activity during National Science Week 2019 are encouraged to apply for funding to support their local communities,” Ms Marino said.

“A total of up to $500,000 in grants will be available for exhibitions, expos and workshops.

“National Science Week runs in August each year and is one of Australia’s biggest festivals. It is a great opportunity to showcase the south west region’s science and technology capabilities to the more than 1 million people participating in events.”

Next year’s National Science Week 2019 will run from 10 to 18 August.
