The day will include:

  • Team challenges - with students (or others!) and Nick and Lindsay participating in numerous challenges across the day, representing either the Mornings or the Drive show
  • Broadcast of pre-recordings with UOW scientists in their labs - including analyses and studies in immunology, biochemistry and in saliva, cells and vapes
  • Broadcast of pre-recordings of Lindsay and Nick as participants in experiments. You will hear Lindsay undergoing a cycling challenge and muscle testing, and Lindsay being a simulated patient to have his digestive tract examined by medical students
  • Live interviews with UOW scientists across different career levels, spanning topics across coastal environments, radiation physics, sex hormones in mental health, cancer research, breast injuries in sport, geoarchaeology and more
  • Human body quiz
  • Science trivia
