National Youth Science Forum - NYSF 

In 1984 the National Science Summer School Inc. began operations with Rotary in Australia as the founding partner. Now trading as the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF), this national not-for-profit organisation enjoys high-level support with the Chief Scientist of Australia as its Science Patron.

The NYSF aims to nurture and encourage Year 11 students who are going into Year 12 to be the next generation of leading scientists and engineers supporting a sustainable future for our nation.

The NYSF helps students moving into Year 12, who wish to follow careers in science, engineering and technology by introducing them to research and researchers, by encouraging the achievement of excellence in all their undertakings, and by helping to develop their communication and interpersonal skills. It also fosters discussion of, and interest in major national and global issues and emphasises the importance of maintaining continuing active interests in sport, arts and music.

The NYSF’s mission is to provide community minded and science focused young Australians an opportunity for network development and insight into skills, careers and a lifetime of achievement in science, engineering and technology.
