The NYSF Year 12 Program is a 12-day residential program designed to give students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage continued studies in these fields.

At the NYSF Year 12 Program run in January each year, participants will:

  • visit science and technology related laboratories and facilities
  • go on site tours
  • listen to lectures
  • take part in workshops
  • go to social events
  • participate in group activities that improve communication and presentation skills.

Participants also take part in sessions on entrepreneurship, critical thinking, how to work together effectively, and more. The focus is not solely on academic achievements, but on developing well-rounded individuals who have the skills and confidence to determine their futures.
