This programme is for OUTSTANDING all round science, maths and technology students in Year 12 who will be returning to school in Year 13 and are planning to study the sciences or technology at tertiary level.

By the end of the Forum students should have a better understanding of the tertiary courses they wish to follow and a fuller appreciation of the place of science and technology in the wider community. It also provides an opportunity for high achieving students to spend time with similar minded people and the experiences gained invariably result in overall personal growth and a renewed motivation to succeed.
