Young Scientists Journal is the world’s peer review science journal, written, edited and run exclusively by 12-20 year-olds from across the globe. We publish original research and review articles online and in print. Our annual conference brings enthusiasts for science and its related fields together so that they can meet, discuss, share their ideas and learn from others.




A series of talks given at the conference by distinguished scientists will inspire and inform students and teachers alike.




You will have a choice of two workshops to attend, allowing you to engage in greater depth with a variety of science and communication topics.




Networking opportunities at the conference will allow you to learn from others and grow your contacts.
