Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)
In today’s competitive world, there are not always opportunities for the average student to step outside their comfort zone, explore their ideas to develop the ‘life skills’ that translate to confidence in everyday life. R.Y.P.E.N. provides this opportunity for young people aged 14 to 16 years.

Get A Student Into Science
Scientists are responsible for most of the new technology we see around us today - whether in transport, energy supply, or even in information technology. Young science students are our prospective physicists, lab technicians, medical researchers, radiographers, psychologists, zoologists and discoverers of cures for cancer - they need your encouragement and support to make this a better place. The National Youth Science Forum is offered to current Year 11 students intending to pursue a career in science, engineering or medicine; forums take place in the January before Year 12. The Science Experience is open to ALL Year 9 students with an interest in science.
