Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter said National Science Week will run from 12 to 20 August 2017 and will be a chance for all Australians to get involved in science.

“This an annual celebration of science and technology, attracting more than a million participants each year and I encourage all interested groups to apply for a grant,”  Mr Porter said.

“Science is important to residents in Pearce and National Science Week is an opportunity to showcase the contributions of Australian researchers and scientists to our community.
