2018 is the 19th year of Science Meets Parliament, and Science Technology Australia are celebrating the largest event yet — and CPAS had its largest involvement yet.

CPAS students past and present attended as delegates, including Zoe Tulip and Sian Keys. Imogen Brown, Michel Watson, Tara Roberson and Samantha Vilkins all volunteered for the event.

Professor Joan Leach and Dr Will Grant led the traditional crowd-favourite pitching workshop, using improvisation games to develop practical communication skills ahead of tomorrow's meetings with parliamentarians.

Everybody is up practicing their pitch with @ANU_CPAS! Dr @willozap encouraging delegates to 'Treat it like an experiment.' #SmP2018. Who here got burnt at the stake? (Yes, that's an in-joke with people in the room)
