STEM Programs

The Santos Science Experience is a three-day program for students in years 9 & 10 who have an interest in science. Participating tertiary institutions provide students with a wide experience of science-based careers that will assist students to make informed career choices. Information is sent to High Schools in March.

The Details

Closing date for applications is 10th June 2021.

Date of the Santos Science Experience is 6th - 8th July 2021.
Students from NSW schools will need approval from the school to attend as these dates are in school term.

Cost of the program is $190 for three days.

Venue for students from Rotary District 9640 is Griffith University Gold Coast Campus.

As this is a program supported and promoted by Rotary International since its beginnings in 1990, most Rotary clubs are willing to sponsor one or more students for part of the registration fee. Students are expected to pay the balance.
The Youth Program Financial Sponsorship Agreement is the basis of the arrangement with a Rotary Club. Download the agreement before making an application.

If you wish to seek sponsorship from a Rotary club you need to send your completed application form to a local club for consideration.
You should normally allow the club about three to six weeks to consider your application before checking with the Rotary club whether sponsorship has been provided.
