About the event
This is a series of six free workshops online. Each session is one hour long. The event is open to people with Down syndrome (16 years and older) from anywhere in Australia.
Our scientist Vanessa will demonstrate some exciting experiments that you can follow along with at home. All the materials you will need are easy to find at home and we will tell you what you need.
Science Alliance combines hands-on science with disability education to enable the full inclusion of students of all abilities in science classrooms and beyond. A core component of Science Alliance is the “Steps of Thinking”, which can be used to educate people of all abilities.
The program will run for 6 weeks on a Wednesday or a Friday. There is no cost
Sessions will run on Zoom and we will provide you with links and support to join.

Vanessa de Kauwe
Vanessa de Kauwe has been an advocate for education and disability empowerment for many years, so much so that she enlisted a group of young adults with intellectual disabilities to create Science Alliance. Science Alliance is an alliance between science professionals and the disability community, aimed at the empowerment of students with neuro-diversity. Vanessa combines hands-on science with disability education to enable the full inclusion of students of all abilities in science classrooms and beyond.
