School science outreach activities

Peter Mac runs exciting, interactive science activities throughout the year for budding researchers to get a taste of life in the laboratory.

What we offer

These activities include:

  • school work experience (note places are limited)
  • science activities to suit the special interests of the school's science students.

Meet our researchers

Students who want to pursue a career in biomedical research have many different career options.

Our researchers and students can come to your school to share their experiences about their research and careers.

We list some of the options and the education requirements for working in those careers.

Our current and past research students tell us what studying at Peter Mac means to them.
