About YSA Brisbane
Promoting science to the youth of Australia
YSA Brisbane is a group of young people aged 14-25 who share a great interest in and enthusiasm for science. We are dedicated to providing a welcoming and friendly environment for our members to help promote science to the youth of Australia.
As our motto ‘Promoting science to the youth of Australia’ indicates, we actively strive to engage with Australia’s young population through providing staff for The ConocoPhillips Science Experience and training our members in science communication to help strengthen their confidence in presenting and enable them to present our demonstrations and workshops. To complement the science side of YSA Brisbane, we regularly hold social events, such as rock-climbing, planetarium visits and our annual ball, to unwind and relax in the company of friends.
Here’s a quick list of some of the things that YSA Brisbane does
- Staff The ConocoPhillips Science Experience at UQ (St. Lucia), QUT (Gardens Point) and Griffith (Nathan) in January and Griffith (Gold Coast) in September/October
- Perform science demonstration at schools
- Provide a weekly newsletter with updates on our science events and socials
- Provide monthly socials that are open to all members (and many are also open for friends of members)
