Helping at the Australian Museum Science Festival

Event Date: 
Tuesday, August 8, 2017 (All day) - Friday, August 18, 2017 (All day)

Dear JAMS community,

JAMS will once again be representing grassroots microbiology at the Australian Museum Science Festival!

We are seeking volunteers from within the JAMS community and from the larger microbiology community to help run our microbiology booth at the Australian Museum Science Festival,  which runs in August and aims to engage school children with different areas of science. If you or someone you know might be willing to give half a day to the cause of microbiology outreach and staffing our JAMS booth, please let me know.

Email and specify your preferred week and any days during that week that you are unavailable.

The dates are:

  • 8-11th August (Primary Schools)
  • 15th-18th August (High Schools).

It’s a crazy and frantic experience, but also fun and rewarding and it looks great on your CV!

I would greatly appreciate it if you could circulate this message to your lab groups and wider network and please let me know ASAP if you can make it!


Tom Jeffries on behalf of JAMS
