SCANZ-ASC Cross-Tasman Challenge

  • The Centre for Science Communication 133 Union Street East Dunedin, OTA, 9016 New Zealand (map)

It’s time for both sides of the Tasman to show their communication skills off in a battle to end them all!

Come and watch, learn, discuss, or take part as Australian and New Zealand Science Communicators take each other on, and share their respective knowledge.  Not too serious, but seriously fun, is the plan…with lots of time to interact and network.   

This is a free event compliment of SCANZ
