APPLICATIONS OPEN: National Youth Science Forum - 2013
|National Youth Science Forum - 2013 : Applications through Rotary Clubs are now open for current year 11 students
The online application process is now open for keen science students currently in Year 11 who wish to be considered for selection for the 12-day residential "science immersion" program to be offered in Canberra and Perth in January 2013.
The National Youth Science Forum is a unique program that enables students on the point of entering their final year of secondary school, the opportunity to get a hands-on feel for careers and learn about study options in the diverse fields of science, engineering and technology.
There are three sessions offered, each of 144 students from all parts of Australia, plus some from overseas. Two sessions run in Canberra, and one in Perth. Students live on campus as University students, gain an insider's perspective on campus life, and experience real science, working with real scientists at a range of laboratories and workshops.
Students gain the knowledge, skills and perspectives that enable them to make informed choices about Year 12 studies - University course options - and provide them with a confident sense of the way forward and into a future of their choosing.
In school holiday breaks during Year 12, they also have the opportunity to come back to campus in university and industry locations around the country, to build further upon their knowledge and experience and add further perspectives that assist in the successful transition to University.
