Jointly run by the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at The Australian National University and Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, the Questacon Science Circus has an illustrious history bringing science show fun to communities around Australia. 

Launched in the 1980s, under the visionary leadership of ANU Physics lecture and Questacon founder Professor Mike Gore AO, each year the Circus has produced a crop of Science Communication graduates ready to take on the world. Almuni of the program are now spread throughout the world, making a significant impacts in their field of expertise and within their community. And this year, we're celebrating our 500th graduate!

We are delighted to invite you to an evening of reminiscence, reflection, and re-inspiration - paying tribute to Professor Gore's inspirational contributions to all our CPAS Graduate programs via a newly formed scholarship fund and hear from a panel including four different decades of Science Circus alumni to reflect on the nature of science communication in Australia in years gone by and years to come.
