The Australian Museum Science Festival (AMSF) is an intensely interactive, explosive, fun and enlightening festival that celebrates National Science Week at the Australian Museum. It brings together scientific organisations and professionals from across Australia (and some small corners of the world!) to show just how fascinating, relevant and ingenious science can be! You can have a look at the programs on offer by checking out our website here.

AMSF volunteers are the ambassadors of this event, helping the Australian Museum’s small Science Communication (SciCom) team to help visitors navigate the Australian Museum, providing useful information about the program and making them feel welcomed and excited at the AMSF!

The support of AMSF volunteers supports SciCom in the delivery of this event, which saw nearly 10, 000 visitors in 2014. Our AMSF volunteers are the face, heart and soul of the AMSF; they are the embodiment of enthusiasm and science personified!
