National Youth Science Forum (NYSF)

Due to the Australian bushfires and the impact of smoke in the ACT, the National Youth Science Forum has made the difficult decision to end Session A of the NYSF 2020 Year 12 Program and return participants to their families while it is safe to do so. We have also had to cancel the National Science Teachers Summer School (NSTSS) that was to run this week in Canberra.

Although there is no current bushfire threat, the biggest risk to the safety of participants is the significant smoke that Canberra continues to experience.

We are saddened to have to cancel but safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We greatly appreciate the resilience and understanding of Participants, NYSF Families, Student Staff Leaders and Rotary volunteers. This cancellation only impacts Session A of the NYSF Year 12 Program and Canberra NSTSS. If you are participating in other sessions or NSTSS in Brisbane, please monitor your emails for further updates.
