Roll out the red carpet because Australia’s Science Channel is going to the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science.
Why? We’re the official media partner and we’re covering the event! We’re coming for you, Parliament House. On Wednesday 19 October 2016, the Primes – as we’re (un)officially calling it – are going to be shaken up as we cover the ins and outs of this glamourous event.
From their website:

Want to go inside The Great Hall, Parliament House in Canberra? Don’t miss out on our first ever Facebook live video from 5.45pm AEDST on 19 October 2016! Follow our Facebook page so you don’t miss out!
We’ll also be live-tweeting as well as featuring our live moderated Twitter wall on the night.
And, of course, we’ll be getting interviews and coverage of the event itself. Keep an eye out on Australia’s Science Channel on Thursday.
The dress code is black tie so you can guess we are going to be looking sharp – especially with our crew shirts!
