National Science Teachers Summer School (NSTSS)

High School Science Teachers


Operating for over ten years, the NYSF National Science Teachers Summer School (NSTSS) is a week-long professional development program that aims to re-ignite the participant teachers’ passion for science, engage them in a professional dialogue about teaching and learning, and to explore ways of engaging students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The NYSF NSTSS is for experienced and new science teachers from secondary and senior secondary schools across Australia. With the support of our host universities, teachers are exposed to cutting-edge science from world-leading researchers via lab visits, workshops and lectures.

There is also the opportunity for networking, sharing experiences, and making friends at a series of social events.

The NSTSS is part of the NYSF’s suite of programs to inform young people about study and career pathways within STEM so they may make informed decisions and reach their full potential.
