Student Challenge, Australia



Student Challenge enables students aged 16 and 17 to participate as research assistants on Earthwatch Australia conservation projects during the summer holiday period.

The program gives students an opportunity to gain practical experience in environmental conservation and research techniques. Students work with scientists and discover science as a career, giving them the impetus to consider university studies and subsequent careers in science and environment.

Education is an integral part of Earthwatch’s work toward a sustainable environment. Student Challenge is a unique and excellent way for students to gain hands-on access to the environment and be empowered, through scientific research, to become champions for its future.

The experiential "learning through doing" process helps students appreciate the world they live in, respond to challenges, and manage change. The scientists and their research staff provide encouragement, advice, and support for students who are at a pivotal point in decision-making for their futures.

If you’re looking at a career in science and want to see what it’s like to be a researcher, Student Challenge is the perfect opportunity. You’ll spend a week helping leading scientists seek answers to a range of vital conservation questions.
