Earlier this week Dr Jim attended the inaugural NT Science Week awards, celebrating Science and STEM in the NT. The night was hosted by local ABC radio local legend Joel Spry. On hand to present the awards were Martian Redhead, Director of Business Innovation, NT anda representative from the Minister for Education and Prof. David Young, Dean of Engineering and IT, Charles Darwin university was the NT minister for Education to present the awards.

Congratulations to Jim on being awarded STEM Scientist of the year and representing STEMfit as Outreach Provider of the year.

There were ten awards all up on the night, with STEMfit winning the Peoples choice award as well.

Mercifully for Jim (and the audience) he didn’t have to give 3 acceptance speeches.

Other members of the STEMfit team were there, not only in spirit, but also online and from as far away as Ngukurr in Arnhem land via Zoom.
