Shell Questacon Science Circus

We’re the Shell Questacon Science Circus - science graduates bringing lively presentations of science to towns and schools across regional Australia while we study for a Master of Science Communication Outreach.

When we visit, we’re about three things:

  • in-school show performances
  • teacher professional development workshops
  • a travelling science centre for the community

The Science Circus is a long standing partnership between Questacon, Shell and The Australian National University. The Master of Science Communication Outreach is run by the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS) at the ANU.

Finding the colour green in Australia

Driving between towns for school shows felt like a strange yet pleasant mix of Australian bush and English garden.

Adventures, long drives and belt buckles

Queensland tour was an amazing four weeks in which I drove over 5,000km.
