Please join us in celebrating National Science Week and the launch of Peel Bright Minds‘ newest initiative, ‘Innovation in Action’.
Innovation in Action is a six-part video series that showcases local organisations innovating in their field through the implementation of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).
As part of the very first episode in the series, Peel Bright Minds have teamed up with PHCC to bring nature-lovers and science-minds a look at the unique lake systems in the Yalgorup National Park and an insight into the Yalgorup Lakes Water Quality Assessment Program which is one way the PHCC team and partners monitor the health of the lakes to inform management.
This event will include a premiere screening of the short film, followed by a Q&A panel discussion and time to mingle over complimentary food and drink.
The video follows PHCC’s Rick James (Coordinator, Wetlands, Science & Management) and Jennie Beeson (Wetlands Science Officer) to the Yalgorup National Park where they collect water samples and discuss how they use science to analyse and predict changes in lake characteristics and health.
