The Conocophillips Science Experience

The Conocophillips Science Experience program is 3-4 days of hands-on science for interested Year 9 and 10 Science students conducted across 35 university and tertiary campuses across Australia. In NSW the programs are mostly held in January 2018.

The full cost for a student to participate in the program is $150 for the 3 day program and $200 for the 4 day program. The Conocophillips Science Experience is a Rotary supported project, and local Rotary clubs are often quite willing to sponsor students.

The programs are non-selective and if you are interested, early application is advised. Further details can be found at or by speaking to Mr Kennedy in the Science department.
