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 recess.
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 at least six 1-hour training sessions during Semester 1 and at least one whole-day session during the mid-semester break.
The Science Delivery Roadshows will take place after your exams and during the winter break. If selected for the Metro Roadshow, your team will be visiting one school per day for four days. For the Rural Roadshow, your team will travel for 5 days and 4 nights to visit 4 schools in rural areas.
Your expenses will be covered for the duration of the Roadshows.
