The Young Tassie Scientists Roadshow is happening again this August!!

Now in its 12th year, the Young Tassie Scientists Roadshow takes young Tasmanian scientists in to schools and classrooms all over Tasmania to talk to class groups about their work and to help inspire a new generation of science enthusiasts.

The aim of the program is to highlight how studying science at school can lead to diverse career opportunities and to showcase the range of research being undertaken in Tasmania.

Members of the YTS Team will come to your school and deliver fascinating and interactive presentations for your students.

If you would like to receive a free visit in August 2014 you will need to fill in the online application form  between June 16 and July 3.

We will be visiting schools in your region on the following dates:
  • North and North East: 11, 12 and 13 August
  • South: 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 August
  • North West and West: 26, 27 and 28 August
