Today is World Science Day, a time to celebrate the importance of science in and for society.

Scientists around the world are committed to solving major challenges of the day through scientific endeavour. World Science Day is an opportunity for all of us to remember the role that science plays towards a peaceful and sustainable society.

South Australian researchers are among the scientists that have contributed to major breakthroughs for the benefit of the state, Australia and the rest of the world. From the Nobel Prize-winning father and son team the Braggs, to modern science heroes like Dr Andy Thomas and Professor Tanya Monro, South Australian scientists have always shown us that science has a huge role in our society.

Inspiring South Australia is committed to raising the profile of science in South Australia. We support programs across the state including Maker Faire Adelaide, Marine Discovery Centre Community Days, Australian-French Entrepeneurship Challenge, Australian Citizen Science Conference, and Science Alive! Regional Science Fairs, to name a few

There are many things you can do to celebrate World Science Day. You can conduct a science experiment at home or share a science story on social media using the #WorldScienceDay hashtag. Become a citizen scientist, or get along to one of the many science events across the state. You can even simply kick back and watch a science film or read a science book.

Whatever you do, make it scientific!
