Join us for a conversation with nudibranch champion Gary Cobb from Nudibranchs Sunshine Coast.

Nudibranchs may be the most beautiful things you never knew we had right on our back doorstep and Gary is on a mission to make sure everyone knows what to look for. Learn all about the citizen science happening to identify all the species of these fascinating little marine creatures. Hundreds of species are still being found and you could find one too!

Nudibranchs are colourful and unique and Gary has some gorgeous photos to share with us.

This is an all ages free event. The verandah at the Australian Hotel is a family friendly venue.

Solar Science in the Pub

science in the pub a conversation with solar power champion murray keys

Join us on the verandah at the Australian Hotel Gympie for a conversation with Murray Keys from the Gympie Community Solar Association.

Murray had a long and successful career in forest science research and is now the president of the Gympie Community Solar Association which helps people assess their power bills and work out the cost-benefit analysis of fitting solar power systems to their homes. They are a not for profit group.

Murray has a particular interest in mitigating climate change as he has observed the effects on our environment and seen first hand the issues it is causing in the Pacific and Asia where a lot of forest research projects are managed as joint projects with state and federal government.

This is a Gympie Bone Museum free event sponsored by Gympie Regional STEM Hub. We just ask you to register to help us plan for catering. Drinks available at the bar.

Science in the Pub have been our most popular events and it is our pleasure to showcase the Science Superheroes of the region.
