Welcome to the 2024 NYSF Year 12 Program!

We hope you are ready for an amazing 9 days of STEM experiences and meeting people who share your passion for all things science, technology, engineering and mathematics! To help you get the most out of the program, we invite you to download our event app (hosted in Whova). You can use the app to see what you'll be getting up to on the program and to connect with other NYSFers.

Accessing whova

The Whova event portal can accessed straight from a web browser on your computer or by downloading the Whova event on your mobile device. Please follow the instructions below carefully:

Step 1. Open the following link on your web browser (we recommend using Google Chrome):, or download the Whova Mobile App to your device (Android or iOS).

Step 2. Enter your email address (the same email address we have been using to communicate with you) and click 'Forgot your password?'

Step 3. You will then receive an automated email from Whova with directions to set up a new password.

Step 4. The next time you log in, just go to the URL stated above, use your email address and newly set up password to log in to the event app.

Step 5. If you encounter an error ('Invalid email address!'), go back to step 1, and on the sign-in page, select 'Sign up here'. Complete your profile using the same email address and once completed, you should then be able to fully access the app.

Step 6. If you encounter any other issues, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at

If you are asked for an event invitation code when accessing the event you have likely attempted to sign-up using a different email to that which you have used for NYSF. Please use another email address and try again.

I'm in! What now?

Once you are signed in you can set up your profile and interact with other NYSFers in the community discussion boards. Meet your constellation and floor groups, or chat with other participants from your state to coordinate travel!

Keep an eye out for Whova updates closer to January where we'll be rolling out: 

  • Your session calendar
  • Speaker announcements
  • STEM visit details
  • And more!
