The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) rose to the challenges that COVID-19 provided to by completely re-inventing the format of our much-loved flagship event, the NYSF Year 12 Program.
For the first time in 38 years, we delivered the 2021 NYSF Year 12 Program as a predominantly digital, interactive experience. This was coupled with localised, in-person STEM visit hubs over a few days in the middle of the program.
The program was carefully designed to ensure an interactive and immersive experience even if COVID-19 restrictions were introduced in various states and territories.
Participants who couldn’t attend in-person visits didn’t miss out, with an additional 25 digital visits on offer that were designed just like an immersive, in-person experience.
This meant greater diversity and accessibility was provided in terms of NYSF offerings, both in terms of locations and STEM fields.
Read about each of the digital visits on offer in 2021 in the articles below.
It was a pleasure to host these STEM visits and bring world-class labs, STEM professionals, and hosts to 2021 NYSF Year 12 Program participants’ homes.
Thank you to all the NYSF Partners for supporting the 2021 NYSF Year 12 Program.
