Work With Us
Do you have a passion for science or simply the desire to get involved with the work here at the Centre? 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.
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. Applicants can hand their resumes into the front reception desk or contact us for more information.
Whether it is helping visitors on our exhibit floors or maintaining our exhibits through workshop assistance, the Centre greatly appreciates the help of our volunteers from the local community. Through our volunteer program, volunteers are involved with activities and individual projects in the Centre as needed. For more information about becoming a volunteer, please contact us.
