I am delighted to draw your attention to an e-Book: The Curious Country.
Earlier this year my Office commissioned a survey to determine what scientific issues most interested and concerned Australians.
The survey results were used to shape the book – a compilation of essays produced by some of the nation’s leading writers and experts in their field.
The book has been edited by experienced science journalist Leigh Dayton and will be available through ANU E Press free of charge. I encourage you to explore using the book as a resource for you and your students.
I hope you find it informative, but more than that, I hope you and your students enjoy reading it.
The book will be launched on 3 December 2013.
You can download it after that date by clicking here.
