The weird and wonderful world of biology will be on display at a series of free workshops and events open to the public at The University of Western Australia on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August, as part of National Science Week.

24 hours of Biology aims to engage the community and expand its knowledge of science by offering activities that demonstrate the importance and practical application of biology in the real-world.

Meet the scientists behind ground breaking research and find out what it’s like hands on to be a scientist.

The events at UWA are open to people of all ages and range from presentations on sharks and ocean predators, to understanding human evolution, how our body organs work and the science of reproduction.

There will be fossil excavation workshops, lessons on how to make paper replicas of human organs and a demonstration on how to extract DNA from fruit. As part of 24 hours of Biology, there will also be a science comedy and storytelling event held at the Centre for Stories in Northbridge in the evenings over the weekend of the event.

UWA Tutor Stephanie Yoong from UWA’s School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology, and event coordinator, said 24 hours of Biology aimed to get the community engaged, involved and excited about biology.

“We hope that by running these events as part of National Science Week we can help people learn more about the interesting field of biology and the world-class research taking place right on their doorstop,” Ms Yoong said.

“24 hours of Biology is an opportunity to promote the field of biology and also showcase the female scientists behind the research.”

Initiated and coordinated by Stephanie Yoong and Catherine Seed from UWA, 24 hours of Biology has been made possible through the support of Inspire Australia, National Science Week and the event partners.
