National Youth Science Forum - for current Year 11 students

National Youth Science Forum - for current Year 11 students

The NYSF Year 12 Program is a 12-day residential program 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.  At the NYSF Year 12 Program run in January each year, 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.


In 2019, there will be three separate sessions running for the NYSF Year 12 Program with the following locations and dates. Each session has places for up to 200 students. Successfully selected students are not necessarily allocated a session in their home state.
Session A:  Wednesday 2 to Sunday 13 January CANBERRA
Session B: Wednesday 9 to Sunday 20 January BRISBANE
Session C:  Wednesday 16 to Sunday 27 January CANBERRA
