Are you passionate about science and maths? Do you want to improve your science communication skills and gain experience to strengthen your resume? The Science Delivery program is looking for volunteers like you to inspire high school students across Victoria!
We are recruiting current Bachelor of Science students to present interactive sessions to school students on what it’s like to study science at university.
You’ll receive training on presentation skills during the semester and work as a team to develop content. Your science sessions will be delivered at low socioeconomic and rural schools in regional Victoria and around Melbourne during the winter break.
To be eligible you need to be enrolled in the Bachelor of Science and be from a low socioeconomic background and/or from a rural or regional area (according to your University enrolment details through Access Melbourne). You can be in any year of your degree and you don’t need previous experience presenting.
If selected, you will be required to attend 8 x 2hr training sessions on Fridays during semester (10am - 12pm OR 1pm - 3pm) and a full-day training sessions during the mid-semester break.
The Science Delivery Roadshow will run for two weeks in July. The team will be presenting to high schools in metro areas Mon 15 – Fri 19 July, and travelling to a regional area of Victoria Mon 22 July – Fri 26 July.
