LOCATION

Melbourne, situated along Australia’s southeast coast, is the country’s second largest city.  A city of parks and gardens, specializing in arts festivals, sporting events, and fine dining, it was voted “the world’s most livable city” in an international survey.  Melbourne, Boston’s sister city, is also a fine place from which to explore the diversity of Australian life.  It is only a short distance from mountains, deserts, beaches, mining towns, and extensive parklands and wildlife reserves.

 

 

PROJECTS

IQPs involve outreach to the Australian public on issues or topics regarding science, technology and society.  The projects usually focus on disabilities, fire protection, education or the environment.
