Ten Fresh Scientists took to the stage and explained their work in the time it takes a birthday sparkler to burn out.

We heard how Aspirin can be used to treat the world’s deadliest infection; using maths to predict illegal logging and poaching; new ways to see pain in your brain.

From electric vehicles to sneaky bacteria; people came along and enjoyed dinner, a drink and caught some of the latest science with researchers from UNSW, Macquarie, UTS, USyd, WSU, CSIRO and the Centenary Institute.

The NSW Fresh Scientists undertook media and communication training at Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney on 5 & 6 November.
