Stories of Australian Science 2014 – out now

Stories of Australian Science 2014 highlights the best Australian science discoveries, prize-winners and top achievers from 2013.

Science is a driver of economic, social and cultural change.

It tells us how our world is changing, and what we can do about it, if we choose to.

But science needs stories and it needs heroes to tell those stories in order to engage with the wider community.

We believe this collection of stories helps. It’s a taste of the best of Australian science.

You can download a copy of the pdf here or view them online.

You can search our complete stories database by organisation, state, field of science or keyword using the fields on the right. Or explore each publication by choosing from the Online tab at the top of the page.

We’ve just printed up 10,000 copies of Stories of Australian Science 2014 and sent 1,200 over to Japan to accompany Questacon’s Science Circus tour around Japan in April and May 2014.

We’re also distributing them to Australian and international journalists, Australian politicians, science leaders, teachers and students, and major science institutions.

If you’d like copies of the magazine, please get in touch.
