A mum of three, engineer, scientist, educator, and all around dabbler, I'm far better at finding interesting things to do than I am at doing housework.

How does science make a difference? It's an interesting question, and there is a multitude of possible answers. So many things that we take for granted in our modern lives are influenced by science. If you're interested in discovering some of the less well known ways that science affects our lives, this lecture is for you!

On Wednesday the 24th of September, PrimeSCI will be playing host to Associate Prof David Paganin as he presents a free public lecture entitled "How Science Makes a Difference"
Associate Prof David Paganin is a theoretical physicist in the School of Physics at Monash University. He specialises in using mathematics to better understand the world around us. For a taste of his work, entertainingly explained, see his article "What my tomatoes taught me about quantum mechanics"

The talk is part of the "Science Shaping Society" Series, presented by PrimeSCI as an opportunity for the public to engage with scientists as they discuss science, its importance, and how it impacts society.
All are welcome at this talk, although the subject matter is probably not of interest to small children. Older children with an interest in science are welcome to attend (probably most suitable from ages ten and up).
The session will be held at Monash University's Clayton Campus, building 28, room G09, on Wednesday 24th of September from 7 until 8 pm. Ample parking is available in adjacent carparks N1 and W1 (free parking is permitted in blue zones without a permit after 5pm).
So why not expand your mind with a scientifically interesting time?
