They NYSF Year 12 Program is one of the best-known science experiences in Australia for young people. The third of three sessions (Session C), kicks off for it’s 37th year on January 15. It is designed to give students real life exposure to the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and foster life-long science literacy. Run for youth, by youth who have recently done the program, close to 200 (per session) students get to live in for 11 days on The Australian National University campus and experience what being a STEM student is like.

Participants will attend lectures and workshops, visit science and technology labs and industry and facility site tours around the Canberra region. Our hands on STEM visits are a chance for students to have a go at STEM. These are highly photographic!  There are numerous lectures by some of Australia's leading scientists featuring cutting-edge science.
