Overview

Join the Australian Academy of Science in their 70th anniversary year for a look at history and into the future, at the 2024 public speaker series.

In each installment, follow the story of one scientific discipline, with an Academy Fellow and an early-career researcher as expert guides.

Across geology, virology, astronomy and more, trace history from landmark discoveries to the present cutting edge of Australian science.

Along the way, get to know the Academy’s iconic earliest Fellows who shaped Australian science: from Oliphant to Fenner to Mawson. You will experience the challenges, triumphs and curly conundrums that scientists grapple with, and look ahead to today’s emerging generation of top minds.

Ignite your curiosity with a series of epic science journeys.
