I'm posting this promo to both ASC lists. I'm hoping that many of you come to some of the wide range of Ultimo Science Festival events (check out the website) and give us some feedback about what we've put together. It might even generate a discussion thread about types of National Science Week events. I'll be posting a string of media releases to the ASC media list and more general blurbs to this list. 


If you are in Sydney you have the opportunity to not only read but to experience some of the stuff in the upcoming issue of Cosmos as part of the Ultimo Science Festival - www.ultimosciencefestival.com
