PurposeSCINEMA International Science Film Festival 2018 showcases a selection of science features, shorts, documentaries, animated and experimental films from filmmakers around the world. In early 2018, the hunt for the best science on screen begins, with filmmakers submitting their films. After a judging process in autumn, the selection of finalists premieres in major cities across Australia. SCINEMA culminates in a Community Screening Program during National Science Week, where schools, councils and community groups anywhere from a school gym in Geraldton to a library in Lismore can register to host their own free screening of a curated SCINEMA film playlist.

PurposeLeading Youth Forward (LYF) is joining forces with Scitech to bring science and technology to one of LYF's flagship Big Day Out events in 2018. The aim is to provide science-themed fun, inspiration, and career advice to teens from disadvantaged and lower socio-economic backgrounds. These young people typically have limited access to quality education, and exhibit low school attendance and engagement. LYF teens are in school years eight to 10, a time when choosing elective subjects. A Big Day Out at Scitech 'plants the seeds' of scientific curiosity, potentially triggering the uptake of science-related subjects.

PurposeNASA scientists are headed to Australia, bringing Saturn to Sydney, new planets to Perth, and more. In September, NASA's Cassini, which has been in orbit around Saturn, met its fateful end while the Kepler Space Telescope, which has been discovering planets around other stars, will run out of fuel by mid-2018. Audiences will hear from NASA scientists from the Cassini and Kepler missions at a series of events hosted by Mt Stromlo Observatory astrophysicist Dr Brad Tucker. With the announcement of Australia's very own space agency, it's a timely look at the international context of our contribution to furthering humanity's understanding of the Universe.

Examine how information moves between neurones by playing a game of Synaptic Ping Pong, build layers (meninges) around an egg to see what types of protection are best for the brain, explore how optical illusions work, look at human brains up close, and more. At each station, children can collect a stamp in their Passport to the Brain and work towards earning an official Brain Training certificate.

PurposeThis CRC-P will develop "off-the'shelf" immunotherapy products for cancer. As few as 3 rare triple HLA homozygous donor cells are histocompatible with a large percentage (~50%) of the Australian population. These will be used to create haplotype induced pluripotentstem cells (iPSCs) that can be infinitely expanded. These iPSCs will be gene edited and differentiated to become cytotoxic T cells with multiple targeting receptors for use in clinical trials of relapsed ovarian and gastric cancers.
