The Murray and Mallee region was bustling with excitement during National Science Week, with a series of events delighting all.

A Brain Break morning tea was held in Berri that gave attendees a chance to sit back and reflect on science in the world. The theme for this morning tea was technology in cars and fittingly, the event was held at Big River Toyota. A big thank you to the staff at Toyota for facilitating the lively discussion.

Science on a Sunday was a full-day public event at Renmark, giving attendees the chance to immerse themselves in science. 50 people attended the event that featured science on film with rolling SCINIEMA screenings, the ever-popular virtual reality experiences, as well as a series of chemical reaction experiments that were engaging to young children and teenagers alike.

The Science Schools Extravaganza in Renmark gave Riverland students a chance to get hands-on with science. A range of workshops were on offer to the 82 attendees, teaching students about spiders, managing waste, drones, environmental science and photography. The Extravaganza was held in conjunction with the presentation of Science Investigation Awards. The Science Investigation Awards encourage students to carry out a science investigation and present their findings to judges and the community.

Science events will continue throughout the year in the Murray and Mallee region. Keep up-to-date by following the Regional Science Hub page.
