The Royal Institution of Australia

 IS BUILDING AUSTRALIA’S FUTURE THROUGH SCIENCE

 

We are building a growing community who watch, read, listen and share their thoughts on what’s happening in science. We are committed and passionate about inspiring the next generation of innovators to build a stronger Australia, engaged with and entertained by science on a daily basis.

 

“The wide diffusion of knowledge about science is so important
that the art of doing so is well worth learning” –

Share Our Vision

Our vision is to weave science into the fabric of Australia’s society. We aim for people to understand science and its’ relevance in day-to-day decision-making, and to empower people to understand the world’s many challenges. We want to restore the value of science, technology, engineering and mathematics as a career path in the eyes of young Australians.

We work with leading minds and scientific organisations to build and connect communities engaged with science. Help us keep Australia’s Science Channel free by supporting The Royal Institution of Australia.

The latest from Bragg member, Prof Terry Hughes, from ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies - Coral CoE: the 2016 heatwave has transformed the Great Barrier Reef, and not for the better.

A third of the reef suffered from bleaching caused by climate change. The reef "may never recover" from the damage.

Commonly-used chlorine sprays might not be as fail-safe as we thought.

Researchers have found that can induce bacteria like Listeria and Salmonella into a dormant mode, which could wake up in a warm environment like a human intestine. https://t.co/FAeb5pV3iA https://t.co/3tvm70cZm3
