National Simultaneous Storytime: Temperatures and space

ALIA, along with the Australian Space Agency and The Office of the Chief Scientist, and with help from Science Time From Space, is very excited to be able to bring an additional science and educational component to National Simultaneous Storytime 2021 - a science demonstration conducted by astronauts on the International Space Station emulating the heat balances between the sun/Earth/space. 
Student questions about temperatures in outer space were answered by Bjarni Tryggvason, Former Astronaut, Research Engineer and Test Pilot.

Australia Reads: 2020 campaign round up

For the Australia Reads 2020 rebrand we moved towards a fun, friendly and flexible look and feel that would appeal to kids and grown ups alike and allow us to easily pivot towards #AustraliaReadsAtHome during lockdown. The Australian Reading Hour, our major event, was delayed from September to November and all but one live author events were cancelled. The move posed significant challenges, but the three campaigns over the year created months of promotion of the benefits of reading.
