OK so technically not on the same stage as Kendrick Lamar or Gang of Youths but I am still amazed at attending the Splendour In The Grass festival as a *performer* alongside artists of their calibre (albeit on a slightly smaller stage!) The #ScienceInTheGrass collaboration of Inspiring Australia (NSW), Southern Cross University and Fizzics Education brings science into the heart of the cultural phenomenon that is Splendour in the Grass. The Science Tent stood alongside art, music and comedy stages ensuring thousands of young Australians saw #STEM as central to their lives as the other programs. I hope they also found our events as engaging as the headliners on mainstage..!
Huge congrats to the collaboration partners, SITG as well as Jackie Randles, Fay Burstin, Kristin den Exter, Elise Derwin (for all the fantastic photos!) and Holly Kershaw, as well as the team of amazing volunteers, for making this such a singular experience for scientists and festival goers alike.
