JCU is giving high school students with a passion and desire to develop a career in science the chance to learn from industry experts and experience how scientific knowledge can improve the quality of life at many different levels.

What to expect?

From this full day program, you’ll gain unique insights into a career in science. You’ll go from the lab and out into the field where you will experience how science informs decisions on conservation, climate change, urban growth and many other areas that affect not only global issues but our everyday lives.

Can I apply?

If you’re in Year 11 or 12 and based within the North Queensland region, you can apply to be a part of the Heroes in Science program. This year, we are also encouraging students from outside of the Cairns region, whom are willing to travel, to submit an application. Travel scholarships are available to successful applicants that meet criteria.
