In2science at RMIT
RMIT Science, Engineering and Health students who would like to get involved in science and maths peer mentoring in schools can become part of the In2science program.
In2science places science and maths mentors from RMIT University, La Trobe University, The University of Melbourne and Swinburne University of Technology into secondary schools to mentor Grade 8 and 9 students in maths and science.
Mentors visit the same class for 2-3 hours a week for a placement of 10-11 weeks during semester. Mentors are matched with schools based on university timetables, where mentors live and what mentors are studying.
