Welcome to the Science Experience Program  

About the Science Experience Program

This  Science Forum has been designed and managed by the Science Schools Foundation,sponsored by ConocoPhillips and conducted in association with participating universities and tertiary institutions,with the support of the Young Scientists of Australia as well as the Australian Science Teachers Association. It is promoted and supported by  Rotary Clubs in Australia. For more information visit
The ConocoPhillips Science Experience is a fun 3 or 4 days of science activities for Year 9 and 10 students.
Each program is designed to provide students who have an interest in science with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of fascinating science activities under the guidance of scientists who love their work.

The program takes place in over thirty-five universities and tertiary institutions, within many different laboratories and lecture theatres. Participants perform experiments in the laboratories, meet and hear senior lecturers in the lecture theatres, attend site visits and walk around and experience what it is like to be on the campus of a university or tertiary institution. More than 65,000 students have taken this rare opportunity to date.

The program also provides information about further studies in science, technology and engineering. It highlights the wide range of careers that allow students to pursue their interest and abilities in the sciences.

One aspect of the program often commented on by participants is the opportunity to meet and share ideas with students from different schools. Each program includes a BBQ or other social activity.
