Seeking Volunteers for August Science Festival
 
Dear JAMS members and friends,
 
I will be coordinating JAMS' stall at the Australian Museum Science Festival this year in August. This is where we bring the joys of microbiology to the public and especially to school kids.
 
Please see the 2014 brochure for an idea of last year’s function.
 
I am seeking volunteers to help run our stall on the 11th ,12th ,13th ,18th ,19th , and 20th of August. Each day will be divided into a morning session (9am – 12pm) and an afternoon session (12pm – 3pm). Please let me know if you can contribute half a day (or more!) to this event. It is a lot of fun, and you will be helping to inspire our next generation of scientists.
 
I am also seeking ideas for activities for the stall, if you have anything that would make a good demonstration or quick hands-on activity please let me know.

Hi all
 
Please be aware of the following courses being advertised to run at HIE in the next few months. These are a good opportunity to hone your skills in essential and commonly-used science technologies.
 
1)      ‘Data Analysis And Visualization With R' Course - Monday 13th April to Friday 17th April 2015
 
The R statistical computing environment has become a standard for scientific data analysis, visualization and reproducible research. At the HIE, we offer an introductory course to help you climb the steep learning curve. This five-day course is aimed at postgraduate students and staff, and is for newcomers to R.
UWS staff and students can enrol at no charge.

Speakers: 

A big thanks to everyone who turned up to celebrate Microbiology at the Australian Museum last night. With 70 people in attendance (including a contingent from Osaka Prefectural Semboku High School) the pizza and drinks didn't last long. Jessica Tout (JAMS annual symposium JPP poster prize winner 2014) and Deepa gave excellent presentations before we were treated to a visual spectacular by Cynthia Whitchurch resolving the inner workings of biofilm biology and public good release by bacteria. Thanks also to Tim Williams and Sabrina Beckmann for running pizzas and beers for the event. Finally, if you're keen to help out at the JAMS desk during the Australian Museum Science Festival plese contact Ani Penesyan (anahit.penesyan@mq.edu.au). Glorious. See you in August.

A massive thank you to everyone who helped organise and attended the JAMS workshop (TOAST) and the annual symposium and dinner. By all accounts people had fun and even learnt a things or two.
