University of Melbourne, Arts West Building, 148 Royal Parade, 3052 Parkville

The University of Melbourne opens its doors to local kids. Primary school students, teachers and parents are invited to experience an event packed with science. For one day, kids will step into the shoes of university students, taking part in workshops and lectures and conducting fun experiments with real researchers. In addition, the award ceremony of our Kinderuni Curiosity Contest will take place. The most fun and imaginative questions of our junior researchers will be awarded with great prizes.

Participation in this event is free. Please note that places are limited. Government schools in Victoria receive a contribution for travel expenses.
