The organisers of the Think Inc. conference, taking place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 18 September, announced today that they will be giving free tickets to all primary and secondary school science teachers in Victoria.

Conference Director, James Gallichio, 24, says “Education is one of the most important aspects of the global economy, yet it’s by far one of the most overlooked and underappreciated aspects of Australian society.

“We want to ensure that the Think Inc. conference is accessible to as many teachers as possible and we don’t want the cost of a ticket to pose as a barrier. At Think Inc., we’re trying to promote science education and science literacy. We want Australia, and especially Melbourne, to be the knowledge capital of the world.

“To this end, we’ve decided that every Victorian primary and secondary school science teacher will be allowed to come to Think Inc. for free. In our minds, there is no better way to promote science education in this country than to give our teachers free access to some of the best minds in the world.”

The list of internationally-recognised speakers at the conference include famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Tim Flannery, Christopher Hitchens, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Father Bob Maguire and Josh Thomas.
