Congratulations to Lisa !
by Helen Sim (CASS)
On Wednesday evening CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science's Lisa Harvey-Smith was awarded this year's Department of Industry, Innovation and Science Eureka Prize for the Promoting Understanding of Australian Science Research (see her video here). The Eureka Prizes are the science Oscars of Australia and highlight the work of an amazing group of finalists, from large multinational teams to 11-year-olds who shoot solo science films. Lisa does outreach to audiences ranging from professional physicists to Aboriginal children in remote regional schools. "When I get to inspire young people ... that's incredibly rewarding," she says.
