Founder's Day is an annual celebration honouring Sir Mark Oliphant and his vision for the physical sciences.
Sir Mark was an eminent Australian physicist and the founding Director of the School. In 1981, Professor John Carver (then Director) introduced Founder's Day as an initiative to unite the School in celebration of the years achievements.
Founder's Day will includes research and education presentations, informative talks on the School's achievements during the year, presentation of the Physics Endowment and School awards, followed by a BBQ lunch.
