The Australian Museum (AM) and the Botanic Gardens of Sydney, two of Australia’s oldest and esteemed science institutions, are partnering to celebrate National Science Week with Sydney Science Trail (SST) events from 10 - 18 August 2024.

We are recruiting the help of around 70 volunteers to help run these special events. If you are interested in joining our SST volunteer team, please carefully read the SST 2024 Event Volunteer Information Sheet before completing the application form.

Sydney Science Trail includes two key components: a five-day school education program and two Community Days. The events for the Monday - Friday school program take place at the Australian Museum and Royal Botanic Garden Sydney . One of the Community Days is held at the AM on Saturday 17 August and the other occurs at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan (ABG) on Sunday 18 August.

Applications to volunteer will close at midnight Sunday 21 July unless our team is filled earlier, so please apply below to ensure you don’t miss out.
