News to hand, we've just been informed that 2509 primary school and 2208 highschool students visited the JAMS exhibition during Science Unleashed. Add this to the 500 members of the public that dropped by on the family day and we have a grand total JAMS booth audience over 5000 people. The microbes should be very happy to get such attention!

A big thank you to all the volunteers who manned the JAMS exhibition booth at Science Unleashed over the last two weeks. In my humble opinion JAMS put together an exhibition booth that was about as engaging as an exhibition booth can get. Extra special thanks to Cathy Burke for organising the schedule. Top job! And finally the biggest thanks go to Michael Kertesz for pulling together the exhibition content. Hard to imagine it being done better. The booth was jam packed with interesting stories, ideas and seeds for future careers. We'll be at it again next year for sure. If you have ideas fresh in your mind for adding to the experience, send me an email

Cheers
