Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre, known as Questacon launched an exhibition on April 10 entitled “Science on the Move” for teenagers.

It is part of activities to mark the 40th anniversary of Vietnam-Australia diplomatic ties.

Speaking at the event held at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Questacon Director Graham Durant said the expo provides opportunities for teenagers to explore and learn about scientific themes relating to the principles of music and sound, light, human biology, motion and force.

Questacon arranges several scientific experiments and workshops to improve local teachers’ capacity, Durant added.

According to the director, the exhibition is to boost the two sides’ ties in education that have developed effectively over the past 40 years, and create enthusiasm for science and technology in young Vietnamese.
