The Asian Science Camp brings together around 200 talented young people in celebration of science and friendship across the Asia-Pacific region.

The camp aims to promote international cooperation and networks among high-achieving young science students of the next generation in Asia and Oceania.

During the six-day camp, Nobel Laureates and world class researchers will share their science experience through plenary sessions, round table discussions and student master classes, which will encourage deeper thinking about science and scientific knowledge among delegates.

Striking a balance between work and play, the camp also offers a taste of an Asian culture with visits to iconic sites and insights into local culture.


Australian Science Innovations is the official organiser for the Australian delegation.

We do not accept general applications for the Asian Science Camp. Instead, we invite applications directly from students who have taken part in our programs and meet certain criteria.

To be eligible to take part in the Asian Science Camp, students must:

  • be an Australian citizen
  • be currently studying a science or maths subject in Year 12 or first year university (or taking a gap year with a deferred university placement).
  • aged between 17 and 22 years
  • have fulfilled one or more of the following:
    • attended an Australian Science Olympiad Summer School.
    • achieved a high distinction in any Australian Science Olympiad Exam.
    • attended Curious Minds.
    • have not previously attended an Asian Science Camp.

Students must have a valid Australian passport. Students who have less than six months before their passports expire should renew their passports immediately if they are successful in securing a place.

Applications for 2023 are currently not open.

All students are required to cover the cost of attending the Asian Science Camp.

The fee varies each year depending on the host country. Students will be advised on the indicative cost during the application process.

There is no fee to apply to the program.
