Science at home

With social distancing measures in place, it might seem hard to still get some science in your life… we’ve compiled a list of organisations offering online or home-based content for both kids and adults, focusing on those offered by the local museums, people and groups here in South Australia.

Inspiring South Australia

The Inspiring South Australia program is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the South Australian Department of State Development, the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia, Flinders University and the South Australian Museum.

Together we are working towards a society that critically engages with key scientific issues, a society that is inspired by science, a society that encourages young people to pursue scientific studies and careers, and a society that attracts national and international interest in its science.
