THE SCIENCE EXPERIENCE




The Science Experience (formerly the Siemens Science Experience) is three days of fun science activities for Years 9 & 10 students. The program is designed to provide students who have an interest in science with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of fascinating science activities under the guidance of scientists. Programs are open to ALL students in Years 9 & 10.

The program takes place in over thirty-five universities and tertiary institutions where students perform experiments, meet and hear senior lecturers in lecture theatres, attend site visits and experience what it is like to be on campus of a university or tertiary institution. The program also provides information about further studies in science, technology and engineering, and it highlights the wide range of careers available, as well as giving participants the opportunity to meet and share ideas with students from different schools. More than 47,000 students have taken this rare opportunity, up to date.
