Queensland's Citizen Science Hub

There are many avenues available to build scientific knowledge, to tap into a network of interesting people and to gain career experience in science or natural history.

You can join a group.

Volunteering to serve on a committee with your chosen group can enhance the experience and make a big difference to the group’s work program.

Sign up for a newsletter – most groups have at least a newsletter for their members and some have a free electronic newsletter for anyone who subscribes.

Attend an event – there are several events every week. Check the Queensland Science Network website, check the website of your favoured group and browse through the Inspiring Queensland events calendar.

Don’t forget the World Science Festival to be held in March 2020 !
