The Science Delivery program is aimed at increasing the participation of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

Current university students who have come from financially disadvantaged or rural backgrounds are recruited and trained as volunteer science presenters. The presenters develop and deliver interactive science activities in low SES high schools in one day programs, developing their communication, teamwork and project development skills. The students act as role models for high school students, reflecting on their personal experiences of university and encouraging students to engage with science in exciting and meaningful ways.
