Ian Thompson – “Iconic Australian Inventions”

August 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Map of Australia showing some inventions

Every day throughout the world over a billion people rely heavily on Australian inventions. Every time they drive a car, fly, eat or communicate there is a good chance that it’s due to Aussies.

We all know some of the great inventions by Australians – Victa, Hills Hoist, Wine Bladder, Vegemite – but our speaker, Ian Thompson, knows a lot more.

Ian is a graduate industrial chemist with experience in agriculture, entomology and patents (with six to his name).

Admission is by ticket only, which must be handed to one of our volunteers on entry. Please make sure you have entered your name(s), telephone number and email address (if any) on the bottom of the ticket. It is our duty to record the details of all persons present.
Hand sanitiser will be available at the counter and other places around the museum. Face masks may be compulsory, depending on current regulations.

REFRESHMENTS
At the conclusion of the talk you will be asked to move away from your seats so that tables can be brought in. You will need to be seated at all times while eating. Food will be placed on each table and a volunteer will take your orders for tea and coffee. When you have finished, please leave your mugs, plates, etc. on the table and one of the volunteers will collect them. Do not take them to the kitchen yourself.
