National Quantum & Dark Matter Road Trip

We had such fun last year, the National Quantum & Dark Matter Road Trip is back for another year!

In less than three weeks, scientists will hit the road again, travelling 4,640 kilometres over two week-long adventures, visiting 24 cities and towns around Australia.

The road trip will begin in Melbourne on 6 August and visit regional and remote schools and communities around Victoria and New South Wales before returning to Melbourne on 11 August.  From 13–19 August there will be a range of public events in metropolitan areas around Australia.  The road trip then continues, departing from Townsville on 21 August and visiting regional and remote schools in North, Far North and Central Queensland until 25 August.
