Festival volunteers are the ambassadors of this event, assisting our small team to help visitors navigate the event, provide useful information making them feel welcomed and excited at the Festival.

The support of Festival volunteers is integral to the delivery of this event which saw over 5,000 students onsite in just 2 weeks in 2019!

Our volunteers are the face, heart and soul of the Festival; they are the embodiment of enthusiasm and science personified!

Opportunities to volunteer with us in the lead-up to the Australian Museum’s premier Science Week event, Science in the City, are now open!

Celebrate all things science with us, meet like-minded people and get an inside look into how a science festival and a museum are run.

Taking place over two weeks in August, Science in the City (SITC) invites students and teachers to join in the biggest celebration of science for schools and we’ve programmed two science-filled community days for the general public too – no one is left out!
