Would you like to work with community organisations and local scientists to create a public science event or activity?
Inspiring Australia (NSW) is offering a total of $70,000 for partnerships between 3 or more scientists, community groups and other organisations towards science activities and events, including during National Science Week 2014 (18-25 August).
Each regional grant of between $2k to $8K is intended to create an enduring local partnership that will continue as a NSW Regional Science Hub
You might like to do workshop or activity to explore the science in your community. Or you might prefer to consider science more broadly. It could be a hands on activity, a public discussion, a competition, a series workshops or simply getting some science activity into local markets, shows or fairs. Your project needs to spark interest and engagement in science within the general community. If you can engage people who don’t normally get exposed to science, that’s even better.
