Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia and the capital of the state of Victoria. Located on Australia’s southeast coast, the seaside city offers a rich array of culture, history, and entertainment. Melbourne has consistently been voted as “the world’s most livable city,” and it’s easy to see why—the city is known for its parks, gardens, and beaches, as well as many popular arts festivals, sporting events, and fine dining establishments.
Melbourne is also a gateway to exploring the diversity of Australian life, as it is located a short distance from mountains, deserts, mining towns, and extensive parklands and wildlife reserves.
Projects in Melbourne involve outreach to the Australian public on topics in science, technology, and society. Projects typically focus on disabilities, fire protection, education, and the environment.
