Science Program - Presenting Science and Scientists to Victoria
The program at the Royal Society comprises an outstanding public lecture series on subjects ranging across the disciplines in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), along with a suite of distinguished awards and prizes to foster, recognise, reward and celebrate excellence at all stages of a scientist’s career. It is our opportunity to learn more about progress in science, discuss issues together, and offer a broader promotional platform to scientists and their research with the general community.
Science is an important part of our state’s cultural life, a point of inspiration not just for discovery and invention, but also creativity and expression. Increasingly, the arts community is finding ways to help scientists bring their work to a larger audience through the tools of literature, visual arts and music.
We extend the impact of the Program through the upgrade of equipment in our heritage Hall - this enables video recording and transmission of key events to reach a wider audience through both livestreaming and a YouTube channel, and also augments the live theatre experience for attending audiences through appropriate projection, lighting and amplification.
