National Science Week, Australia, 10th-18th August

What Do An Aussie Cricket Legend And A Robotics Expert Have In Common?

Science is all about facts. And it’s a little-known fact that one of Australia’s most popular sporting legends, former cricketer Mike Hussey, is also a qualified science teacher!

Mike (aka Mr Cricket), and the 2012 Young Australian of the Year and robotics expert Marita Cheng, are encouraging all Australians to get involved in the excitement of this national event, which runs from the 10th – 18th August.

Mike and Marita may seem worlds apart, but from a cricket ball to a robot and everything in-between, they both know that almost everything in day-to-day life owes itself to science. Without science, there’d be no mobile phones, no cars, no antibiotics, no Internet and – wait for it – no radio!

Now in its 16th year, National Science Week is a celebration of science in Australia, with more than 1,000 fascinating events taking place across every state and territory.
