National Science & Engineering Week’s theme for 2013 is Invention & discovery.  Everything around us has at some point been invented and everyday problems lead to new innovations to solve them. Explorers of the natural world discover new things every day, from new species to space phenomena.
TV presenter Dallas Campbell  is our ambassador for National Science & Engineering Week 2013. Check out the video above in which Dallas gives the lowdown on how schools and other organisations can take part in the celebrations.

And speaking of discoveries…did you know that since 1987, 3,000 new amphibian species have been discovered? This year, we are challenging you to make your own jumping frog with the templates available to download on the Origami jumping frog page. If you’re “stuck”, feel free to cheat with the video instructions , your frog will be up and jumping in no time!
