Our world: a scientific exploration involves an appreciation of the importance of science for daily life, business, politics, our collective future and our view of ourselves. The exhibition displays objects and material from the University of Tasmania Chemistry Collection. The Chemistry Collection includes research and teaching equipment, plus objects and related material that hold specific significance to the history of the University of Tasmania and the nation. Collected over 70 plus years the Chemistry Collection informs the story of scientific research within the University of Tasmania. The Collection Managers have selected objects and material that emphasize defined significant points of academic interest, the obscure, the challenging and some personal favourites much loved by staff and students.
