Hi Audience! You're awesome!
On Tuesday August 16, The STEMpunks, Tom, Christie and Shane hosted our third STEMpunk quiz as a part of the Sydney Science Festival and supported by National Science Week at Wayward Brewery in Annandale, Sydney. It was a huge success with a huge audience, and a great vibe.
