Every year during Science Meets Parliament, scientist from around the country travel to Canberra to meet politicians and policy makers.
During the two days, there is a lot at stake for the participants, as politicians can influence budgets and policy priorities. It is like 'Australia Got Talent' for scientists!
We followed 4 up-and-coming around Parliament House, and into the Prime Minister's rooms. We follow them when they prepare their pitches and straight after the meetings.
Thanks to Science and Technology Australia.
