Focus on Photosynthesis: a look into the fascinating world of plants

This weekend, Join the ARC for Translational Photosynthesis at Canberra’s Science in ACTion festival, and immerse in the world of photosynthesis.

As part of National Science Week, our Centre is going to participate with exciting displays and hand-on activities. You will be able to extract plant DNA, explore how light is used by plants, and learn about the revolutionary innovations we are working on to produce more food for the future.

We will also have a photographic exhibition, Focus on Photosynthesis, showcasing the 15 finalists of a photo competition in our Centre. This intriguing exhibition will take you inside the leaf and over the crop fields through the eyes of plant scientists.

Don’t just believe that plants produce oxygen and transform light into food, see it with your own eyes!
