Showcasing the communication of science innovation and cutting edge research

A group of leading Monash scientists will share brief insights into the challenges they face when undertaking cutting edge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) research.

Each speaker will tell stories from their research tackling some of the most pressing problems of the twenty first century. Their accounts will help to demonstrate that engaging in science is seldom formulaic or prescriptive, but can be exciting, creative, and often highly rewarding.

Learn how research questions (and careers) are sparked, how research problems are overcome, how novel and innovative research approaches come about and how new ways of thinking can lead to surprising scientific solutions.
