Teachers may wish to encourage students currently in Year 11 to apply to attend the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) in January 2018. The program has expanded with an additional 200 places being made available next year. Two sessions will be held in Canberra and one in Brisbane.
Applications open on Wednesday 1 March and close on 31 May 2017.
You can see videos about the NYSF experience here:
I had the privilege and pleasure to be invited to the NYSF Science Dinner in January this year and found it inspiring to meet some of the Year 11 students participating. They were all passionate about science and technology were obviously enjoying the new friendships they were making.
