Great Big Science Read
The annual Great Big Science Read invites Australians to read, write and think about science. It can be as simple as picking up a book, either fiction or non-fiction. The Great Big Science Read runs throughout August, coinciding with National Science Week and Book Week.
Opens: 29 July | Closes: 18 August

Host a Science Book Club
RiAus is encouraging book clubs to choose a science themed book in August. To help, we’ll provide some discussion notes following the July RiAus Book Club – Makers by Cory Doctorow. PLUS Makers is available as a free e-book download, so it’s an easy choice for your next book club.
We’re compiling a new list of book recommendations from famous scientists and personalities in 2013. Check them out, and pick up a science themed book this August.
See all the other recommendations we’ve collected over the years here.
PLUS, submit your own science themed book review and we will collate and post them for others to read.
