School Events

Astronomers from the Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology are occasionally able to provide additional special activities for Victorian school students, such as hosting work experience, giving talks to school groups or participating in the CSIRO Scientists in Schools program.

Our main outreach program for Victorian school students is AstroTour, a 3D journey through the Solar System and beyond, held in the Virtual Reality Theatre at Swinburne University's Hawthorn campus. For details, see here.

Work Experience

We are occasionally able to take on high achieving, motivated high school students, with an interest in astronomy for work experience placements. Multiple dates are available throughout the year. However, please note that we are not able to accommodate all requests for placements, due to the availability of staff and the timing of requests.

Applications for the 2020 program are now closed. If you are interested in applying for work experience for 2021, please e-mail a cover letter, resume and available dates to Emma Barnett:

Scientists in Schools

The Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing participates in the CSIRO's Scientists in School program. If you are a school teacher who is interested in linking your class with an astronomer, please contact Genevieve Lazzari:
