The Young Tassie Scientists (YTS) program is about raising awareness of the range of career and study options available in science and engineering, and inspiring students and community members to become interested and engaged in the Tasmanian science sector and in science in general.
YTS is held as part of National Science Week each year.
The Young Tassie Scientists are dynamic and innovative early career scientists and researchers from diverse backgrounds, who engage a range of audiences with fascinating stories about their research and careers.
Now in its 11th year more than 130 young Tasmanian scientists have taken part in the program, reaching out to many thousands of students in countless classrooms all over Tasmania. YTS also act as National Science Week ambassadors, appearing at community events and special Science Week functions each year.
For more information about the program and full profiles of this year’s YTS Team, please visit the Young Tassie Scientists website.
The YTS program is sponsored by National Science Week, the University of Tasmania and the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts.
