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.
During the session, presenters share exciting (and sometimes explosive) science demonstrations, work through science activities, share videos of University life, and act as role models for your students by sharing their backgrounds, the challenges they have overcome and their stories of success.
The program is aimed at students in year 7 – year 10.
Monday 10 July - Friday 14 July (term 3, week 1) - Melbourne
Monday 17 July - Friday 12 July (term 3, week 2) - Regional (tbc)
Free to your school
This program is delivered to schools in low SES and regional areas of Melbourne and Victoria.
The program is flexible and can fit in with your school’s timetable. We recommend a 1.5hr session.
Students will firstly gather together to watch the science demonstrations, and then break off into small groups to work through science activities. They will then gather together again to hear more from the presenters and to wrap up the session.
Classrooms with access to AV equipment to show videos and a powerpoint presentation.
