Put on a white lab coat, a pair of goggles and get out the test tubes because it's National Science Week.
National Science Week runs from August 14-22 and celebrates all things science and technology.
As part of the celebration, events are being held across the state that science lovers or curious minds can get amongst.
One of the events, a lecture titled Breaking New Ground, will be particularly interesting for those who want to learn about renewable energy and health.
University of Tasmania PhD candidates Priyadarshni Bindal, Eric Gubesch and Kate Edwards will each talk about their own research within the field of science.
Mr Gubesch will present the opportunities and challenges of generating renewable energy from ocean waves at the lecture.
"[I hope people learn] there is an enormous potential for Tasmania and Australia to develop a wave industry," he said.
"We have a huge coastline ... and there is an enormous amount of energy available there."
Mr Gubesch said it was very important to get people inspired by science and renewable energy.
"I think the more we can communicate to society, the more they understand what we are doing and where the future is," he said.
"It's important we can have a week to focus on it."

Another speaker, Ms Edwards, will discuss what she has found so far while investigating the connection between exercise induced gut damage, oestrogen, and the gut microbiome, and how it may impact females.
"[I'll talk about] whether females are most susceptible to gut damage in certain parts of their menstrual cycle than others," she said.
Ms Edwards hopes by listening to her chat, attendees will realise though it is assumed sport science is based on equal numbers of male and females, the reality is different.
"The majority of participants in sports science experiments are actually males," she said.
Ms Edwards urged more people, especially women, to get involved in studies.
"We need more female scientists and we need more people just in general to make sure we have equal numbers of participants and we are not excluding females," she said.
Ms Bindal is investigating barriers to oral care access for community-dwelling seniors, and will share her work at the lecture too.
"I am going to share part of the data analysis [from my research]," she said.
"Oral health is always put on the backseat."
Ms Bindal is a teacher and as part of her work would like to try and get a booth during science week to educate on oral health effects.
Breaking New Ground will be held on August 22 at 1.30pm at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery. General admission is $6.
Other events being held in the North include a SciVR event at Lilydale Library on August 21, and two events at The Hub in George Town. QVMAG is also hosting several other science related events.
