Science Celebration

This event was held in September 2019 to announce the Young Tall Poppy Science Award winners.

A/Prof Jodie Rummer from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University was named the overall Queensland Young Tall Poppy Scientist of the Year for 2019.

Each of the 14 young scientists delivered a one minute pitch on the research and communication activities that led to them being short listed for the award.

These awards recognise and celebrate people who demonstrate scientific excellence and a unique passion for science communication, and encourage young people to enter STEM careers.

The event was held at the Queensland Museum and attended by guests from the scientific community as well as award nominees’ family members.

The annual Queensland Young Tall Poppy Science Awards are hosted by the Australian Institute of Policy and Science (AIPS) in partnership with the Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist.
