*Applications open 1 March 2016 and close 31 May 2016*
Do you have students in year 11 studying science subjects who would benefit from attending the 2017 National Youth Science Forum (NYSF)? Our online system is opening soon for year 11 students who would like to apply for selection for the 12 day intensive residential program in January 2017 held at The Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra.
The National Youth Science Forum is a unique program that offers students entering their final year of secondary school the opportunity to learn about study options in the diverse fields of science, engineering and technology. Students live on campus as university students, learning about campus life. They also experience real science, visiting scientists at a range of laboratories and workshops and in the field. They talk with researchers, and build life-long professional and personal networks among their co-participants.
Our goal is for students gain the knowledge, skills and perspectives that enable them to make informed choices about future study and career options.
During year 12, NYSF students also have the opportunity to participate in further short programs at various locations around the country, which extends their experience and understanding of science, engineering and technology career opportunities and adds further perspectives that assist in their successful transition to university.
Everything you need to know is available on the NYSF website, www.nysf.edu.au . Please contact us if you have any questions about the application process – including how to put students in touch with their local Rotary club – or the NYSF.
Please contact Mrs Nero or Mr Lancaster if you have any questions.
