Conference welcome reception and demo extRavaGAHHANzah

The conference welcome reception will be held at Scitech
on Monday, 17 June.

The event

Catch up with colleagues and friends, network, and see some innovative and fun ways to share science.

Conference delegates can check in and pick up their conference lanyard at this event.

There will be a selection of WA wines and other beverages, along with a selection of nibbles to have. After the event, all are invited to head across the road to the Phat Brew Club to have an informal dinner (self-funded).

This event is available for anyone who is attending the conference or has an interest in science communication (RSVPs are essential for non-conference attendees).


Sharing science

Want to present a new or exciting way to demonstrate a scientific concept or message? Get involved and share your ideas as part of the Extravaganza!

Your presentation could be something you’ve used for years, something you’ve whipped together last minute or something you want to try out for a bit of fun. It can be any style of engagement, poetry, interpretive dance, explosion. It is up to you! 


While we are flexible, we’re looking for demos that can be shown in around 5 minutes. Let us know if you need longer.

After filling in the detail in this form, you will be contacted by the team at Scitech who will work with you to make sure you have access to everything you need.

A demo isn’t a good demo if it doesn't have adequate risk management. The Scitech team will also liaise with you to ensure everything is safe and that you have risk mitigation in place.

The welcome event is included in every in-person conference ticket, and is also available for those who have an interest in attending but are not able to join us for the main program.


RSVPs for non-conference delegates are essential.
