Here we go again
A smaller crowd but they were rewarded.
Our meeting kicked off with a great presentation by Steve Burgess, 2016 Bob Hawke Landcare Award recipient, Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee. who spoke about the important role of citizen science in local communities. Video Facebook
The business end of the meeting looked at grants, activities, collaboration and communication. Apart from this blog, we now have a Facebook page and a Twitter account GympieSTEMHub (shame they limit the name length). There is also a closed FaceBook group for members of the management team.
More news soon on our first group project. Spoiler: it involves social media and STEM role models from our regional community.
