The Apprentice programs are small, hands-on workshops in which scientists, technologists and innovators educate curious minds on the workings and wonders of their chosen fields.
In the Museum Curator’s Apprentice, biologists showcase Queensland’s remarkable marine biodiversity, as well as Queensland Museum’s priceless collection and the scientific research undertaken at the Museum.
By sharing their expertise and passion for animals that live underwater, the scientists will introduce apprentices to new technologies that have helped marine scientists gain a deeper understanding of the sciences of taxonomy, systematics and evolutionary biology.
Capacity limit of 10 apprentices per session.
Covered footwear is essential.
