There are a number of ways to be involved with the Science Centre and Planetarium, offering educational development programs through our internship program, or invaluable experience through our volunteer program.
Paid Internships for UOW Students
Interns are undergraduate students of the University of Wollongong who are passionate about science. Interns join the program when they are in 1st or 2nd year and are drawn from relevant faculties of the University such as Education, Science, Engineering and Mathematics. Interns work in a broad range of areas at the Science Centre with the aim of further developing skills to enhance their future employability. Training areas include science communication, retail (front reception desk, science shop, kiosk), show presentations, science busking, outreach science shows, school holiday workshops and more. Interns undergo on-the-job training from Science Centre staff and from relevant outside trainers.
PLEASE NOTE: All applications for Science Centre student intern positions are now to be submitted through UOW Jobs on Campus (JOC).
