Are you a senior high school student interested in trying your hand at your own scientific research project? Whether you are looking for a Science Extension research project and mentor or just interested in getting started in science research now, we invite you to take part in SciX2021 Online@UNSW.
SciX2021 Online@UNSW supports Science Extension students and other keen high school students to complete their research projects by providing them with access to UNSW Science’s world-leading researchers and research tools in an accessible online environment. Students are placed in small groups focused on a particular research area and technique. Each group’s UNSW Science mentor, a current PhD student and practicing researcher, will introduce students to research and tools at the frontier of scientific knowledge, supporting students in developing their individual hypothesis and carrying out their independent research project.
The centrepiece of the SciX experience is a one-week intensive summer school, delivered online for 2021 on 18th – 22nd January 2021.
How It Runs

Our leading academics and science educators have designed a set of tools, resources and equipment to support students to investigate their selected line of inquiry around a specific research topic. The research projects offered are overseen by our academic research staff and are delivered primarily by our research PhD students. You can view the projects on offer below.
