Bring your burning science and technology questions to MPavilion and ask an expert during this fun and fast-paced event. Scientists and professionals from across a number of fields will be on hand for you to meet, learn from and interrogate with your questions, be they broad or out of the box! Each expert will give a brief presentation at the commencement of the event, introducing themselves and their field of knowledge and experience, before you’re invited to meet one-on-one with an expert of your choice.

Joining us on the day will be molecular biologist and science communicator Upulie Divisekera; Aunty Kerrie Doyle, the Associate Professor of Indigenous Health and the Coordinator of Indigenous Health for the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences at RMIT; and Candice Raeburn, a design summit officer at Engineers Without Borders Australia and Science & Technology STEM Ambassador.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
