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.

We are now taking applications for our next group of presenters!
