YSA Melbourne is proud to announce new science outreach volunteer opportunities for our members in conjunction with the Science and Engineering Challenge.

The Science and Engineering Challenge is a national science outreach program, with the aim of encouraging secondary students to pursue careers in science and engineering. The program is run as a series of event days, where up to 250 Year 9 and 10 students from many schools are able to come together to participate in hands-on, practical activities that help them to understand the role of science and engineering in their everyday lives. These events happen across Victoria, in both regional and metropolitan areas.

YSA Melbourne members have the opportunity to participate in these event days as Science Mentors, helping to inspire these students as they complete their activities for the day, and even helping with the running of these activities! If you’re looking for an exciting, fast paced science outreach opportunity, that helps students get excited about science and engineering, then this is the YSA outreach opportunity for you!
