Shirty Science – science and art meet on a shirt

Shirty Science aims to bring research out of the lab by sitting ANU scientists down with local artists to come up with a shirt design that represents their research.

Geologists, astronomers, chemists and much more paired up with artists, after a rapid speed dating session. Together they spent a few weeks developing a final design which has been printed on shirts, creating a walking bill board for new scientific research.

With so many artists and scientists working together there is bound to be a Shirty Science shirt for everyone! These inspiring designs aim to spark conversation about the awesome research happening in our amazing city.
