Curious about artificial intelligence, space travel and virtual reality? Or are you into dance and theatre, design, film and TV? Ever found yourself in a Google deep dive into Barbra Streisand’s cloned dogs?

Science Gallery Melbourne is looking for young and curious people to join Sci Curious – an advisory group that will help inform and shape the future of our exhibitions, public events and programs.

We’re keen to talk to 15 to 25-year-olds who are passionate about art, science, design, technology and innovation, and who are keen to meet other like-minded, self-confessed (and proud) nerds and contribute to the Gallery’s planning and projects, keeping young voices front and centre.
