ECU at Perth Science Festival

Tuesday, 05 September 2017


This year’s Perth Science Festival was held indoors for the very first time, and more than 17,500 people took advantage of the warm and dry surroundings to get involved with science.

PhD candidate Mike Lohr fascinated visitors with tales of his research into Boobook owls. Thousands of kids (and kids at heart) measured the pH of everyday chemicals using red cabbage indicator, taking home their very own acidic or alkaline test tube. They also had fun using the handheld USB microscope, investigating their skin, hair, and clothes.

The reaction to ECU’s stall was overwhelmingly positive; if you missed out, we will see you next year!
