2013 Brain Break Tasmania Photo Competition Winner

This year, Tasmania had over 30 Brain Break morning teas registered across the state. We offered a $100 ABC Shop voucher to the morning tea that best exhibited what a Brain Break hopes to achieve: fun science in the workplace, at home or at school.

We encouraged everyone to put their culinary skills to the test and we were not disappointed! However, there can be only one winner, chosen by hree judges from the Tasmanian National Science Week Coordinating Committee.

In first place are Cradle Coast Natural Resource Management who put together a spectacular event including a host, menu and iTunes playlist!
