SciSoc: the University of Sydney Science Society

What is SciSoc?

Scisoc

The University of Sydney Science Society (SciSoc) has been making sure that campus-life is as fun, exciting and vibrant as it should be for every science student at the University of Sydney since 1904.

Today, SciSoc boasts over 5600 members, including undergraduate and postgraduate students, staff members and enthusiasts of science at the University of Sydney.

Here is only a taste of the diverse range of activities that we have planned for this year:



  • REFRESHINGLY TASTY FORTNIGHTLY BBQs
    Every fortnight, SciSoc members will be fed with an all-you-can eat BBQ. Better yet, it’s completely FREE if you come dressed in your SciSoc T-shirt!
  • BRAIN-BUSTING TRIVIA NIGHT
    Trivia Night is the night for the brightest minds in science to come together for the ultimate showdown – in a friendly atmosphere with lots free food, drinks and over $2000 of prizes, of course!
  • THOUGHT-PROVOKING PUBLIC LECTURES, FORUMS AND DEBATES
    Learn about cutting-edge scientific research from world-renowned experts and discuss the impacts of science in current social, economic, legal and political issues.
  • USEFUL CAREERS SEMINARS, WORKSHOPS AND EXCURSIONS
    A science degree leads to so much more than just research in a lab! The Careers Program will allow you to develop job-seeking skills, network with potential employers, learn about scholarships, internships and graduate programs, and go on excursions to get first-hand experience of the company cultures and work environments.
