Chris Bryant and Mike Gore Prize for Science Outreach

Offered by ANU College of Science

Overview

Each year the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science may offer one prize known as the Chris Bryant and Mike Gore Prize for Science Outreach.

The objective of the prize is to recognise excellence in a science outreach-oriented assignment completed by an undergraduate student in a science communication course. The prize honours Chris Bryant, who during his period as ANU Dean of Science founded the program that became the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science, and Mike Gore, the ANU academic who founded Questacon - The National Science and Technology Centre. The collaboration between the ANU and Questacon in the 1980s marked the beginning of the institutionalisation of public science outreach activities by ANU science students, which continues in ANU science communication courses in the twenty-first century.

Funding for this prize has been provided by donors to the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science Endowment, which was established in 2013.

Details of prizes including eligibility and Conditions of Award are subject to change without notice.
