Join the team

We are looking for volunteers who are keen to get involved in some fun makerspace activities. This would involve helping families get excited about science by showing them some fun science activities they can do at Discovery, sneaking into some science and planetarium shows, some free icy poles, and endless tea and coffee! 

If you have been a volunteer with us in the past we would love to have you back!

If you’re interested in being involved please email [email protected]

Work experience

Develop your skills in a supportive environment, and gain valuable experience to build your resume. Volunteering or completing placement at Discovery has been a great foot in the door to casual employment within the organisation.

Teaching experience

La Trobe University Bendigo is the Discovery Science and Technology Centre education partner, and you can complete your Community Service Learning component of EDU1DLC during first year education here at Discovery. We also host second year Preservice Teachers.

Student Placement

If you’re a La Trobe University Bendigo student you may be able to gain course credit in the Workplace Integrated Learning Scheme (WILS) at Discovery. We can help you develop skills in science communication, marketing, workplace dynamics and team work.  Talk to your course coordinator to learn about credit opportunities.
