veski supports WEHI's Hooked on Science event

30 May

veski has a limited number of bursaries available to assist schools with travel and other costs related to attending the Hooked on Science event at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research with Professor Elizabeth Blackburn.

Professor Elizabeth Blackburn was born in Tasmania and studied at the University of Melbourne. She first became interested in science in high school when she started reading books about how the molecules of life work. Elizabeth went on to make a medical discovery so important that she became the first Australian woman to win a Nobel Prize.

Now based in the USA, Elizabeth is travelling to Australia to speak to junior and middle high school students about her passion, struggles and successes, and the exciting science relating to cancer and ageing that led to her 2009 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

veski has a limited number of bursaries available to help schools, who would not otherwise be able to attend, meet the costs associated with travel, transportation and employing a relief teacher.
