As this is a program supported and promoted by Rotary International since its beginnings in 1990, most Rotary clubs are willing to sponsor one or more students for full or part of the registration fee.

If you wish to seek sponsorship from a Rotary club you need to send your completed application form to a local club for consideration. You should normally allow the club about three to six weeks to consider your application before checking with the Rotary club whether sponsorship has been provided. For contact details of your local Rotary club please call 1300 4 ROTARY or

In general, food and drink costs need to be met by participants, but in some of the programs the organisers will provide morning teas, drinks and perhaps a BBQ. Information about meal arrangements will be provided to participants about 7 days prior to the commencement of the program.

Any transport costs to or from the program and any accommodation costs, need to be met by the participants. Any transport arranged by the organisers during the program to make local visits will be provided free of charge.

Payment of the $72/$210 fee may be made by cheque, money order or credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Cash will not be accepted.

Alternatively, you may email an application to or mail an application with a cheque, money order or credit card details to The Science Experience, PO Box 158, Monbulk, Victoria, 3793.


A refund is available minus an administration fee of $35 if you inform us at least four weeks before the event that you are unable to attend. A refund is not possible within four weeks of a program as local organisers have committed funds by that stage for equipment and other resources to provide for your attendance.
