Volunteer with Learning Labs

Learning Labs is an academic and visual art enrichment program run in the school & university holidays for primary school students. Students come on the university campus to participate in a fun hands-on workshop based on their area of interest. 

You would be a student volunteer placed on a specific workshop, helping the presenter out and having fun with the kids. Workshops are based on a variety of topics, you could help make new robot creations, learn about the world of Ocean Engineering or even end up Hogwarts! You can volunteer for 1 day or more!

You will need a NSW Working with Children Check (WWCC) to volunteer with Learning Labs. If you don't already have one, you can apply for a WWCC for free. We welcome students studying any degree to come and volunteer with Learning Labs.
