Science is more crucial than ever in helping us understand and address the increasing number of challenges facing our planet.
The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize at the South Australian Museum is a prestigious international competition that challenges artists to tell the stories of natural science using a range of media. Entrants explore the processes and discoveries of every scientific discipline in creative and unlimited ways.
