Science at Home – Instagram competition

13 May 2020

Our ANU Master of Science Communication Outreach students have made videos demonstrating experiments that are safe for you to do at home. They are entertaining, and you might even learn some science along the way!

Whether you replicated the results perfectly or achieved a completely different outcome, we want to hear about it! Show us your efforts in our Science at Home competition for a chance to win some cool prizes!

How does the competition work?

1. Pick a science video uploaded by one of our Master of Science Communication Outreach students

2. Watch the video and follow along with your family - see if you achieve the same outcome, or something totally different... that's science!

3. Upload a video or photo of your science experiment outcome to Instagram using #ANUalumni to tag us. And don't forget to include your notes and observations!

4. Repeat the above as many times as you like!


At the end of May, two entries will receive an age-appropriate science prize pack. There will also be multiple spot prizes issued each week.
