Melbourne Museum is inviting teachers and students to “Meet the Scientists” this year in its National Science Week Program for Schools.
The Museum is home to a wide range of scientists, including astronomers, palaeontologists, mammalogists, ornithologists, herpetologists, entomologists and marine biologists.
At the four-day Program, held at two different venues, students will have the chance to hear from four scientists about what their day job is, how they got there, their latest and greatest scientific discoveries, and ask them questions.
According to the Museum, the Program is best suited for students in Years 8–10.
