‘My week of work experience was amazing, and opened my eyes to many possible careers in natural history that I hadn't considered before.’
Katrina, work experience student
Are you in Year 10 and aged up to 18 years old? Do you want to pursue a career in science, history or museum work?
Spend one week away from the classroom learning about a specific job or area of museum work. You could help re-box and photograph a collection, make unit trays for specimens, re-pin insects or repair and conserve gallery displays.
We regret that placements are limited and heavily oversubscribed and we cannot involve all students who meet our criteria.
