I’m wanting to invite all WA members of the ASC to a presentation by Robyn Williams on 29 Sept at Edith Cowan University’s Joondalup campus.


Robyn will be talking about:


·       Two revolutionary things that will impact science communications

·       Why science is crucial

·       40 years of the Science Show – access to the world’s  finest researchers and the vital topics that still resonate.

Below is the invitation with the RSVP button at the bottom of the email.

ECU’s Inspirational Leaders Presentations aim to engage with ECU staff, students and the community by inviting inspirational people in senior and leadership roles to share their experiences in their given professions.


This Inspirational Leaders event will feature Robyn Williams AM. As creator and host of ABC Radio’s Science Show, and a leading science communicator, Robyn has kept Australian audiences informed and engaged with scientific discovery, research challenges and the wonder of ‘the new’. The Science Show has always delivered the element of surprise and amusement that has been driven by Robyn’s curiosity and sense of fun. Being a natural entertainer, he has also made guest appearances in Dr Who and Monty Python’s Flying Circus!


Robyn will reflect on the past 40 year of broadcasting, why science is crucial, and two revolutions that are currently changing science communications. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, and then refreshments in the foyer.
