Applications are now open for the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) 2019 Year 12 Program and close on 31 May 2018.
Calling all year 11 students! If you like hands-on science, workshops, meeting new people and hearing from world-class scientists, apply for the 2019 National Youth Science Forum by 31 May 2018.
The NYSF Year 12 Program is a 12-day residential program run in January each year. It is designed to give students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage them to continue their studies in these fields. Participants will:
- visit science and technology related laboratories and facilities,
- go on site tours,
- listen to lectures,
- take part in workshops,
- go to social events, and
- participate in group activities that improve communication and presentation skills.
Participants also take part in sessions on entrepreneurship, critical thinking, how to work together effectively, and more. The focus is not solely on academic achievements, but on developing well-rounded individuals who have the skills and confidence to determine their futures.
The NYSF is run by youth for youth, with a certain number of participants being selected each year to come back and participate in our Student Staff Leadership Program (SSLP) in preparation to help run the program the year after they first attended.
