"Founded in 1959, LIYSF aims to give a deeper insight into science and its applications for the benefit of all mankind; and to develop a greater understanding between young people of all nations."
"Inviting the top science students from around the world every summer, LIYSF is a truly unforgettable program where surprising discoveries are made and lasting friendships are formed." Peter Zhou, USA
"LIYSF has introduced us to cultures, languages and songs from around the world, which has shown us that although we are all very different, we all share the same interests in terms of science, and also our wish to learn." Gemma Prunes, Spain
"Spending two weeks with over 300 like-minded students from all areas of the globe was the greatest aspect of the forum, I have learnt so much more about the world in which we live." Chris McRae, Australia
"LIYSF is not all about the academics, and I think I've gained just as much from the social programme as I have from the academic programme." Rachel Wiltshire, New Zealand
"The international element of this forum is incredible as it is fascinating to discover and learn more about other cultures." Beth Evans, UK
"In short, LIYSF was magical; a microcosm of the future as envisioned by pioneering scientists. Yet, it was so much more." Kevin Lee, USA
