UQ Science Demo Troupe is a group of volunteers interested in spreading enthusiasm for science.

We regularly meet to practice our various science demonstrations and to come up with new, more exciting ones. We frequently visit schools to run science activities, and also regularly present lecture demonstrations for various undergraduate subjects at The University of Queensland.

Robogals is a student-run, not-for-profit organisation which aims to empower girls and young women to pursue engineering and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields.
