Twenty four (24) young people from remote and regional areas of Western Australia have been selected to attend the Indigenous Youth Science Forum in October this year.
Supported by NYSF partner Rio Tinto, the IYSF is a developmental opportunity for indigenous Year 10 and 11 students from Western Australia to gain exposure to the study and career opportunities within science, engineering and technology. This program is an abridged version of the January NYSF sessions and is held in Perth during the October school holidays. This year, students are coming from Geraldton, Karratha, Derby and Kalgoorlie. The program is a collaboration with Western Australia Department of Education Follow the Dream: Partnership for Success program.
The Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and IBM Australia are also supporting the program.
