Revue: n. - French; A revue is a variety show with skits, music and dance based around contempory news and issues, university life and the faculty or school on which it is based.

The Science Revue is a student run society at The University of Sydney that channels the creative energy of some of Australia's smartest young scientists and produces every aspect of an original comedy sketch show every year. Founded in 2005, the Science Revue has rapidly established itself as one of the most innovative and successful student-run organisations in Australia.

WHAT WE DO (100 words)
The Science Revue provides an avenue for multi-talented young scientists and the leaders of tomorrow to engage with each other creatively and collaboratively outside the classroom while enriching the cultural and social fabric of the university. It provides invaluable experience in all aspects of organisation and communication through the ground-up development of a top quality production for both its members and associates.

- Science graduates are the most sought-after groups of undergraduate university leavers. This is because they are recognised as having the skills necessary to place their employers at an advantage in today's modern, technology driven marketplace.
- National shortage of science graduates means that they are agressively recruited. The average graduate will have attended 9 'careers seminars' offered by a graduate employer in the areas of accounting, finance, consulting, or government by the time they reach their fourth year.
- It has been estimated (PWC, 2006) that the average cost of recruiting one top university science graduate is around $40k, or nearly 6 months of salary.
- Many prospective employers thus seek to position themselves advantageously with respect to university clubs and societies, especially ones with a high concentration of desirable graduates.
- Science Revue members are recognised across campus as being involved, switched on, outgoing, capable and well-rounded team players. We have a proud record of all members who have undertaken honours whilst active in the society achieving first-class honours.
- Sponsorship is essential for the Revue to be able to put on a high quality show, as it provides for theatre hire, props, costumes, lights, music, video, advertising, programmes, camp, catering and ember subsidies.

Science Revue offers different tiers of sponsor involvement, ranging from essential in-kind service donations to sector exclusive sponsorship and careers deals. Science Revue is happy to tailor sponsorship packages to fit the unique need of our valued supporters.
