Travelling Science Workshop Leader

Education Interactive Chippendale, New South Wales

Job Description

We are looking for a dynamic science presenter to join our team in delivering science outreach workshops to high school students across Australia.

Our workshops are mock crime scenes where students are introduced to a case and with your assistance, students work to 'solve the crime'. The program aims to introduce students to how science can be used in the real world as well as the broader goal of making students aware of the science all around them while making science fun!

The workshops run during school hours, so you often have the afternoon free. You will be trained on delivering the program in person or remotely and be supported initially in schools. Following this, you will work autonomously to deliver these workshops.

Who we are: Education Interactive is Australia’s widest-reaching Forensic Science outreach program. We use the lens of forensics and the power of storytelling, to bring the science taught in class to life. We currently run workshops across Australia and have previously delivered programs in Ireland and the UK.
