Mi­cro­scope on sci­ence stud­ies

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Como Local Government Reform -

RACHEL For­man is look­ing for­ward to don­ning the white lab coat and safety glasses in Jan­uary when she joins about 400 young peo­ple for the Na­tional Youth Sci­ence Fo­rum.

The Como Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dent hoped she would get a lot out of the fo­rum.

“I re­ally hope to meet a lot of won­der­ful peo­ple and es­tab­lish long-term friend­ships,” she said.

“I also hope to learn about what fields of sci­ence I could po­ten­tially study one day.

“I love know­ing how ev­ery­thing works. Sci­ence helps con­nect me to na­ture and helps me de­velop a deeper ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the world I live in.”

Fo­rum di­rec­tor Damien Pearce said it was a chance for young peo­ple to learn more about their study and ca­reer op­tions in a pro­fes­sional and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment.

More than 1200 young peo­ple ex­pressed in­ter­est in at­tend­ing the Fo­rum and selections were made by Ro­tary clubs across Aus­tralia.
