LO­CAL STU­DENT SE­LECTED

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

CON­NOR White from Moss­man is one of 60 of Aus­tralia’s bright­est tech­nol­ogy-buffs who con­verged on Mac­quarie Univer­sity in Syd­ney in late Jan­uary to take part in an ad­vanced dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy sum­mer-school, backed by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment. Con­nor said par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pro­gram was very ex­cit­ing, in­ter­est­ing, fun and pro­vided him with a great op­por­tu­nity to ad­vance his math­e­mat­ics in a prac­ti­cal sit­u­a­tion. “I met with stu­dents my age from across Aus­tralia, who were all keen and want­ing to push them­selves, just like me.” said Con­nor. “By the end, we were grouped with men­tors to help us cre­ate our own func­tional pro­gram. I feel proud and hon­oured to have been given this op­por­tu­nity.”
