Welcome to the Swinburne Science Experience 2021
If you’re in Year 9 or 10 and you know that the science of today is the technology of tomorrow, then you’ll want to come to campus to learn and explore STEM through interactive, hands-on workshops and demonstrations.
About this session
This program, sponsored by Santos, has a focus on real-world applications and will encourage natural curiosity to explore the never-ending possibilities of science.
You’ll meet leaders from the scientific community, work with innovative technologies in our specialised labs and facilities, watch out-of-this-world science demonstrations and participate in hands-on workshops that will challenge and excite.
Join us for our action-packed July program and see where a career in science can take you. Funded places are available. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this interactive workshop, students get hands-on experience in the lab using qualitative testing techniques and chemical instrumentation to discover how we learn more about the world around us.
Chemistry in Action
Chemistry is full of visually stimulating spectacles that can amaze everyone, from young children to chemistry veterans! This presentation gives students the opportunity to see some of these experiments performed, along with a discussion of the science behind them and the value of the chemistry involved.
Discover the world of black holes and warped spacetime! OzGrav explores the historic first detections of gravitational waves and how we now understand the extreme physics of black holes and warped spacetime. Come with us as we delve into this new window on the Universe.
Tour the Australian Synchrotron
The Australian Synchrotron is a world-class national research facility that uses accelerator technology to produce a powerful source of light – x-rays and infrared radiation – a million times brighter than the sun.
The facility has 10 different experimental stations, or beamlines, which harness that light, so researchers can see the fundamental structure and composition of materials on scales ranging from the atomic to the macroscopic with a level of detail, speed and accuracy not possible in conventional laboratories.
