Work experience at GTAC

Work experience for secondary school students

GTAC is proud to offer an engaging and rewarding work experience program for Victorian students. The program, known as our Science Immersion Research Experience(SIRE) program, provides students the opportunity to work within the GTAC team. This can involve using research grade equipment to conduct cutting edge science experiments, pursuing small research projects, tours of world class science research facilities such as the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, and assisting team members in preparing and delivering educational programs.

Check out some of the science communication efforts from previous work experience students below.

To participate in SIRE students will need their Careers Councillor/Coordinator, Science or Biology teacher to express interest in this program for them. This is a necessary step which can only be done by a teacher or councillor/coordinator. If a space is available, we will then be able to book the student in.
