Residential Indigenous Science Experience (RISE) – Special event

The University of Melbourne and GTAC are proud to present the tenth annual RISE program: a week long program to provide Indigenous middle-years students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

This is a unique event for Indigenous students in Year 9/10 with a fascination for Science. Join like-minded Indigenous students and interact with your scientists to learn more about the principles and real-world applications of cutting-edge science.

The academic program offers workshops and presentations exploring current themes in physics, chemistry, biology, maths, engineering and computer science. Participants will be supported throughout the week by Indigenous scientist mentors.


Owing to COVID-19, the 2021 program will be delivered virtually (as VISE 2021), rather than in the residential format.

This program is offered at no cost to participants.


Who – Middle years Indigenous students

When – 9.00 am – 12.00 pm, Monday 22nd to Friday 26th November, 2021
