Science Delivery

Meet new people, improve your communication and teamwork skills, and be a science role model for high school students!

What is Science Delivery?

Science Delivery is an outreach program run by the Faculty of Science and aimed at inspiring high school students from low socioeconomic status areas to continue studying science and go to university.

Each semester, volunteer presenters deliver science shows and workshops to high schools in metro and regional areas. Presenters receive extensive training and are responsible for developing the content for the program.

By participating in the program, presenters develop their communication and teamwork skills and act as role models for the high school students by telling their own stories of success.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, the University has adopted a series of changes to reduce rates of infection in the community. This includes the option of delivering this program into schools virtually. We will continue to follow expert government and health advice, and prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors.

Time commitment

If selected, you will be required to attend 6 x 2-hour training sessions during the semester and a full-day training session during the mid-semester break. The Science Delivery Semester 2 Roadshow is running Monday 29 November - Friday 9 December (excluding weekends).
