Information for Parents


YSA is all about science and providing extracurricular opportunities otherwise hard to find for the scientifically inclined. Our members come from all walks of life, from all parts of Adelaide and even rural parts of SA. YSA is committed to creating a safe, positive environment for all members. In particular, some of the benefits for members of YSA lie in:

  • A deeper understanding of science
  • Challenge and extension for students who excel at the sciences and maths
  • A positive environment where a passion for science and education is highly valued and respected
  • A network of people who are able to offer first-hand experience and advice in academic enrolment
  • A network of people who can offer advice on employment and job prospects in the industry
  • A closer look, and better access to universities, and their wealth of scientific resources

Furthermore, we run a peer mentoring program, and all our events and functions are drug, smoke and alcohol free. Always. YSA presents a fantastic opportunity for students to extend their passion, get quality advice from other members, unparalleled access to some fantastic resources and opportunities, and meet other like-minded people, with the same passion for science.
