Students in year 11 this year who have a passion for science and technology should look at applying for the National Youth Science Forum 2018 program. Attending the NYSF is an excellent way for young people to assess their level of interest in and commitment to further STEM study, and to start building networks for their future. Delivered in the January school holidays each year, the 12-day program offers laboratory visits and science tours, the chance to mix with like-minded students from all over Australia, and activities that develop a better understanding of the wide range of study and career options available to them through engaging with corporate and university partners.

Up to 600 places are available in 2018, an extra 200 places made possible through funding from the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA); three programs will be run – two hosted at The Australian National University and one at The University of Queensland.
For the first time, the NYSF is offering an Equity Scholarship: 40 participants attending NYSF 2018 Year 12 Program will receive $1,000 each towards their registration fee, paid as a reduction in the Year 12 Program fee. Applications are currently open and all documentation must be received by 31 May. Applications must be endorsed by a local Rotary club; information about how to connect with a Rotary club is available on the NYSF website.
