The University of Western Australia, one of the leading science research universities in the world, is bringing its Science for our Future Festival to Singapore.
More than 5,000 Singaporean students have graduated from UWA and the message at the Science for our Future Festival is: society needs more science graduates to tackle the big issues confronting our planet.
The Festival will be an exciting and engaging mix of talk show, audio-visual and outrageous science experiments, hosted by professional science communicator Sarah Lau.
The presenters are world leaders in areas of research, industry and government including:
Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall, former WA Premier, and former Australian Federal Health Minister Professor Carmen Lawrence, and winner of the 2010 ATSE Clunies Ross Award Medical Physicist Professor Tim St Pierre as well as UWA's Chair in Agriculture, Professor Kadambot Siddique and Dean of Sciences, Professor Tony O'Donnell.
