Scientists to embark on stellar journey

Scientists to embark on stellar journey

A life-changing opportunity awaits for Year 11 students Laine Graham BK9 and Luke Harris BK9, who have been selected as only two of a few hundred students from across Australia to attend the 2018 National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) in Canberra in January.

NYSF, which has been holding its Year 12 program since 1984, is designed to give students a broader understanding of the wide range of study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Over the course of the ten-day program, held across university campuses, Laine and Luke will have the chance to visit science and technology related laboratories and facilities, listen to lectures, and take part in sessions on topics such as entrepreneurship, critical thinking, and how to work together effectively, among others.

Laine said that the forum would be an extraordinary experience which would leave him with memories for the future.

He believed the NYSF would offer him a greater view of careers in STEM, and introduce him to countless new friends of similar interests.

Luke is also looking forward to meeting other like-minded students from around the country, as well as being involved in the wide variety of STEM subjects which will be explored as part of the program.

Laine and Luke are hoping to study Computer Science and Technology respectively at university, and then peruse diverse career paths in, and beyond, these fields.

Rotary Clubs from Bendigo assisted in the application process, with both students grateful for the support and guidance they received.

We congratulate Laine and Luke on this remarkable achievement, and wish them the best of luck for this unforgettable experience.
