Our Astronomers from the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing are regularly hosting events and activities for Victorian school students. These provide an opportunity for students to learn the science of the galaxy in a highly engaging and entertaining way.
Be amazed by 3D movies and animations of our ever-expanding universe.
AstroTours educate audiences about astronomy using innovative virtual reality technologies developed by Swinburne's Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing.
They are hosted by professional astronomers who can adapt the content to the requirements and learning outcomes of the audience.
AstroTours are suitable for both primary and secondary students.

Student Space Experiment Competition
The Swinburne Space Office is running a 10-week program that takes students through a Space Application micro-unit in order to research and design an experiment for space. Finalists will have the opportunity to send their experiment to the International Space Station!
This program, previously only offered to one school, has successfully launched three student projects into space!
