Monash Science STEM Talks is a live and recorded series of presentations “showcasing the communication of science innovation and cutting edge research”. The event hosts a group of leading Monash scientists who share insights into the challenges they face when undertaking cutting edge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) research.
Each speaker shares stories from their research tackling some of the most pressing problems of the 21st century to demonstrate that engaging in science is seldom formulaic or prescriptive, but be exciting, creative, and often highly rewarding.
Targeted primarily at science teachers, as well as prospective science students, academics, alumni and those interested in STEM research, the talks aim to inspire creative thinking on how to teach science in schools, while giving rare access to leading scientists from Monash University.
Audience participants get first hand insights into how research questions (and careers) are sparked, how research problems are overcome, how novel and innovative research approaches come about and how new ways of thinking can lead to surprising scientific solutions!
