Key Dates - 2009 sequence


April 22nd -- The Day
This is ‘the day’ to carry out interviews, photography,
video, observe and record what is happening in science.
Or, keep a diary on your own activities, and capture a few photographs.

May 19th -- Diary Entries Due
Have a weblog or diary entry for us? Enter it on this site
using our automated submission process.
Cannot decipher or employ the automated process?
Send your submission to us at wwds@unsw.edu.au.
We will incorporate your materials into the
WWDS website for the June 1st launch.

May 20-23rd -- Finalising of Day in Science pieces
At this stage, all student reporters should be getting their stories to a
final, polished stage, mounting their web pages, etc.

May 26th -- Site links due
Last day to send in a link to your own Day in Science web page
for inclusion in the World-Wide Day in Science website.

June 2nd -- Crude version of website completed
An initial version of the World-Wide Day in Science website is
completed. It will be refined by UNSW students, and a CD-ROM
version created for distribution starting in August.

View a mock up of the new home page here.

June/July – Refinement of the website
A ‘cleanup crew’ of university students refines the hurriedly
completed web pages and copies the site onto a CD-ROM.
The CD-ROM permits inclusion of more video than the
website, as video takes a while to download from the web.

August 3rd -- Launch of World-Wide Day in Science CD-ROM
Australia’s National Science Week provides the occasion for
launching the polished product of the World-Wide Day in
Science effort – a refined website and flashy CD-ROM. The
CD will be distributed to high schools around Australia.
You can order copies of the CD for high schools in your area
as well - wwds@unsw.edu.au
