Last weekend Professionals Australia set up a stall at the Perth Science Festival at the Perth Cultural Centre. We were there to help raise community awareness about funding cuts and policy changes impacting science, engineering and technology in Australia. PA staff and members had over 400 conversations with the public about who we are, what we do and the lack of funding for STEM. Over the course of the weekend we even did experiments with 1200 children attending the fair.
We would like to thank all our staff and volunteers for making the stall such a success, and the most popular destination for messy kids at the festival!
