National Youth Science Forum

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) Year 12 Program 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 continued studies in these fields.​

The NYSF Year 12 Program runs two summer sessions :

  1. The Australian National University, Canberra (5-13 January 2024)
  2. The University of Queensland, Brisbane (12-20 January 2024).

Participants stay at university colleges and are immersed in science and technology, and have the opportunity to:

  • participate in tours of science and technology facilities,
  • learn about cutting-edge research,
  • engage with industry partners and research providers,
  • learn about university, training and STEM career pathways,
  • mix with other like-minded students from all over Australia,
  • participate in social and team building activities, and
  • network with former NYSF participants.

Delivered by youth for youth, past participants return each year to participate in the Student Staff Leadership Program and help run the program the year after they first attend.

Applications close 31 July 2023.
