SARDI joins the Goyder Institute at Science Alive!

The Goyder Institute is hosting SARDI-PIRSA at its stand at Science Alive this coming weekend. The Adelaide and and Mount Lofty NRM Board, SA Water and Australian Water Quality Centre will also showcase water management initiatives at the Goyder Institute stand.

This weekend SARDI’s achievements will be in the public eye, with exhibitions at Science Alive! and a finalist in this year’s Unsung Hero of South Australian Science SA Awards, Dr Alan McKay, the leader of SARDI’s outstanding Soil Biology and Diagnostics science program. He will receive this deserved recognition for 35 years’ of service to science in Australia.

Winners of the South Australian Unsung Hero and Young Tall Poppy science awards will be announced at the launch of National Science Week at the Goyder Pavilion, Adelaide Showground on Friday evening.

National Science Week (10-18 August) is Australia’s annual celebration of science, encouraging interaction between the public and museums, science institutes and other knowledge sharing.  

Science Alive! kicks off National Science Week in Adelaide with a Career Day on Friday, expected to attract more than 2,000 high school students, where PIRSA’s Graduate Access Program (GAP) for the SA food industry will be promoted.

Science Alive!  continues on Saturday and Sunday (10am-4pm), with SARDI Aquatic Sciences promoting its fish ecology research and water management projects for the Goyder Institute for Water Research.

Also check out the AIFST SA Science of Food and Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy stands – or even the Daleks, Bugs n Slugs or Curiosity Show attractions.
