Please join us for the eighth Hinkler Innovation Series event with insightful discussion and a keynote from Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

The theme of this event is ‘From STEM to Space’.

The event will celebrate the winners of the prestigious Hinkler Innovation Award and Junior Hinkler Innovation Award.

Mayor Jack Dempsey will also provide the region’s annual economic update. Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is the man with the answers when it comes to science and technology.

His enthusiasm for science is totally infectious and no one is better able to convey the excitement and wonder of it all than Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

An established author of 47 books, Dr Karl was honoured with the prestigious Ig Nobel Prize awarded by Harvard University for his ground-breaking research into “Belly button lint and why it is almost always blue”.

He has over half-a-dozen regular weekly radio segments in Australia, as well as a weekly radio segment in South Africa, and appears regularly on national TV, in magazines and podcasts.

In 2019, the United Nations awarded Dr Karl the UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularisation of Science at the World Science Forum in Budapest, Hungary.

This prize is global recognition of Dr Karl’s gift for science communication.
