Science Delivery

Science Delivery is a program presented by passionate university students who want to inspire your high school students to study science and go to university!

Science Delivery aims to encourage students from a diverse range of backgrounds to study science and  go to University, and ensure any barriers they are facing do not stop them from achieving their career goals. The program is presented by Bachelor of Science students from the University of Melbourne, who have all overcome challenges to achieve success in their studies
