National Youth Science Forum


Inspiring Futures

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) provides talented Year 11 students from around Australia with a 2 week science experience at the start of Year 12. At this hands-on and digital experience, science comes to life and students learn leadership and communication skills and start networking for their future careers. Selections are made following interviews by the District Committee. Over 600 students are selected from Rotary Districts all over Australia to come together for this eye-opening experience. Selected students have an enthusiasm for a career in science, technology, engineering or maths.  More information: or Email: or for the District Coordinator -

Extract from the NYSF 2021 Facebook page "Week one of the program included a Nobel Laureate Lecture, a live cross to @CERN in Switzerland, seven Specialist Lectures, two panel discussions, three at-home science experiments, a critical thinking workshop, plus social activities including interest group meetups and a trivia night, it really was a STEM-filled first week at the Program!"

"This week has made me even more g'd up to learn more about different areas of STEM I've never considered before!" - Phoebe NYSF 2021 Participant.
