The department highly values its broad engagement with the wider community, including schools, the government sector and industry.

Teachers: School Partnerships Program and Resources

Would you like to have a scientist on call? Would you like your students to interact directly with leading researchers? Would you like to increase your technical knowledge?

The department engages with local schools through our School's Partnership Program, the Scientists in Schools program and by the provision of BOSTES accredited professional development for biology teachers. If you wish to organise a school visit, join our program or wish to pose an idea for teacher professional development please contact the department.

Finally, our department is a major contributor to the variety of events for school students, teachers and parents of prospective students held each year.

School Students: Work experience

Are you interested in biology? But you are unsure what a career in biology looks like? Then why not choose our department to do your work experience. It is best to coordinate this through your careers officer and/or relevant teacher. We offer a week-long work experience programs for school students at certain times of the year. The work experience weeks have concluded for 2017.
