In addition to the event, Can Stories Save Us? organised by PLV as part of the Inspiring Victoria ACCLIMATISE program, libraries across Victoria are celebrating National Science Week from 13-22 August. Inspiring Victoria has published an article summarising this activity.
National Science Week is approaching, and Victorian libraries are bringing science out of the books on their shelves to life. With interactive workshops, activities, and talks covering all aspects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), there will be opportunities to discover new areas of science with experts, conduct experiments, build and program robots, and engage your creative side to make science-themed arts and crafts to take home.
‘The breadth and creativity of Science Week activities demonstrates public libraries’ commitment to lifelong learning, their capacity to make that learning fun, and their willingness to explore new technologies and share them with their communities,’ says Angela Savage, CEO of Public Libraries Victoria. ‘We are proud to be part of this celebration of science in local communities.’
