National Science Week 2021: Shining light on an energy efficient future
We are excited to confirm that the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science has received funding from the Australian Government to assist with our participation in National Science Week, from 14-22 August.
This is the second consecutive year that Exciton Science’s grant application has been successful.
In 2020, amid the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, this funding contributed to the development, launch and promotion of a series of engaging arcade-style video games showcasing the Centre’s research themes to audiences of all ages. To play the games, visit: https://excitonscience.com/games
This year, we will offer audiences a compelling vision for a renewable energy future in which we can transform light into electricity and electricity into light more efficiently.
A series of workshops will unpack the scientific principles behind this vision and provide a hands-on demonstration of the future possibilities of solar and lighting technologies.
A pop-up exhibition at The University of Melbourne’s Parkville campus will show how the solar panels on your roof work and reveal how our science is contributing to even more efficient technologies.
