Things are starting to bubble, with Camden Council’s fun-filled, food-themed, online Science Week program in action.

Science Week features more than 1,000 events around Australia every year and, this year, it runs from Saturday 14 to Sunday 22 August. Camden Libraries has joined forces with Council’s Waste and Sustainability Teams to offer lots of exciting content, including:

  • A video which explains the science behind making popcorn;
  • A video which teaches how to regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps;
  • A video that combines cooking and growing, teaching how to use home vegetable garden items to create delicious winter recipes;
  • National Geographic eResources that teach about the future of food and the role of science;
  • A theatrical, composting video full of fun and learning from Eaton Gorge Theatre Company;
  • A video which shows how to make sustainable beeswax wraps; and
  • A video which teaches how to create a mini herb garden.

 Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said the program was an exciting way for residents of all ages to learn something new and have some fun while in lockdown.

 “Science Week is a great initiative that allows people all over Australia to connect online and discuss the many different activities that are available,” Cr Fedeli said.

 “The theme this year is ‘Food: Different by Design’, which means everyone will be able to get involved from the comfort of their own homes, whether it be watching an educational video, attending the online live events, or creating something of their own.

 “All of the activities will be available on the Camden Libraries Facebook page and you can go to Camden Libraries webpage to see the schedule of events.”
