Applying for a school visit

The Young Tassie Scientists visit schools around Tasmania during August to celebrate National Science Week. They share their work through engaging talks and activities which can be adapted for all grades, Kinder to year 12.

A typical visit involves three scientists arriving at your school, where they split up and give their 20-minute presentations concurrently in separate classrooms. Classes rotate between the presentations so that students get to meet three different scientists during a 70-80 minute visit.

Young Tassie Scientists visits are free thanks to a National Science Week Grant and funding from the University of Tasmania. Whilst we try to visit as many schools as possible each year, our visits are subject to scientist availability.

Applications for a 2024 visit from the Young Tassie Scientists open 2 June until 30 June.

Schools which have applied will be contacted during July 2024 to confirm visits.
