It is our pleasure to announce that the Centre for Science Communication's newest PhD student, Bonnie Scarth, has been awarded a prestigious Fulbright scholarship for the 2015 academic year. The award will enable Bonnie to conduct a portion of her dissertation research on the subject of suicide prevention, science intervention and public discourse at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Working with her advisor at the Centre, Associate Professor Jesse Bering, Bonnie will also be attending several conferences in the United States during the upcoming year, including venues in Kentucky and Colorado. We at the Centre for Science Communication are very proud of Bonnie's accomplishments and wish her and her family a safe and productive trip to the United States

Centre Student wins Cinematography Award


We are delighted to announce that one of our current Science Communication students, Samuel Chen, has recently received two prestigious awards from the Australian Cinematographer Society. Sam was presented with the Silver Award for his cinematic work in the short film "Cliff Rescue" and the Bronze Award for his efforts on the film "Hypocrite," which showcased Darwin-based hip-hop artist Dan the Underdog. Although Sam could not be at the award ceremony -- he was on Kangaroo Island filming for his MA thesis documentary (tentatively titled “Life on the Edge" -- the Society managed to catch up him earlier this year and presented the awards to him in person. (Don't be fooled by her sad face; Sam's dog Winny was enthralled that he won). Congratulations, Sam! We are very proud of you and the rest of our talented students here at the Centre for Science Communication.  
The Australian Cinematographers Society is Australia’s leading organisation for cinematographers. Its premier event is the Australian Cinematographers Society Awards: For more info:  http://www.cinematographer.org.au 

We have moved locations!


Recently, the Centre for Science Communication bid farewell to our home of eight fabulous and productive years at 303A Great King Street. We are proud to announce that we have now officially moved to the magnificent Owheo Building at 133 Union Street East, on the University's central campus. This new location will accommodate our growing numbers of both students and staff and provides state-of-the-art facilities for all of the Centre's activities. 


To cap off this milestone move and to launch the next chapter in our history, the Centre hosted a mini-conference over two days in which 2nd-year MSciComm students presented their current work. It was a great success with plenty of great discussions and feedback. It is always exciting to see what our very creative students come up with over the course of their time here and this mini-conference provided a wonderful glimpse into this process.
