  • Promote Science Experience (formerly Siemens) throughout the District and receive applications from Clubs.
  • Conduct briefing and debriefing sessions for Awardees.
  • Applicants should be about to enter Year 10.

The Science Experience is a national program that encourages students in Years 9 and 10 to consider science, engineering and technology as interesting and worthwhile subject and career choices.

The programs are essentially 3 days of hands-on science fun and activities in laboratories, short interactive lectures in lecture theatres from prominent scientists such as Dr Fiona Wood (2005 Australian of the Year) and the Sleekest Geek himself, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and most programs include a visit to a local research/industry site. Each program provides information on possible careers and future study opportunities.
