UWA will host an exhibition stall at the Perth Science Festival on Saturday 18 August and Sunday 19 August at the Claremont Showgrounds (10am-5pm). We are looking for engaging, interactive, hands-on science activities, suitable for a primary school and family audience that can be part of our stall and demonstrate how fun science can be.
If you or your area would like to be part of the festival atmosphere and carry out an exciting science activity, please contact Rilana Ostheim by Friday 1 June to discuss your ideas. A commitment of at least one day is required.
Each year, the UWA Fogarty Scholarship Program awards 10 scholarships to exceptional young people studying at The University of Western Australia. Fogarty Scholars are academic high achievers with the desire, motivation and ability to positively influence their communities. They are UWA’s best and brightest.
A UWA geospatial software start-up that began intensive research just three years ago is gaining significant traction on the international market.
Mapizy Founder and CEO, Dr Ravanbakhsh and his partner Dr Pouria Ramzi are supplying computer vision software to help monitor changes to built-up and natural environments for agriculture, mining, natural resources and urban infrastructure projects.
This two day experience is designed to help researchers take the first steps to understanding the market for their research idea. Through IQ LaunchCamp researchers will be introduced to tools that will help them test and validate their ideas by starting the process of ‘proof of problem.’
Do you have a research project that needs software written for it? Third-year Computer Science students undertake group projects which are sourced from around the University. As well as traditional Computer Science application domains, past groups have done projects in diverse areas, including archaeology, lactation biology, medical education and conservation biology.
