Teen to represent WA at science forum
A SALTER Point teenager has secured a coveted place representing WA at the next National Youth Science Forum at the Australian National University.
More than 1200 young people expressed an interest in attending and Year 11 Corpus Christi College student Brittany Pascoe was one of the 400 successful applicants.
“I am ecstatic to be able to go on this trip and learn about the many different aspects of science,” Brittany said. “Hopefully it will help me choose what I want to be.”
Participants engage in a mix of laboratory and research facility visits and have the opportunity to meet leaders from the scientific world.
“It’s such a great opportunity to be able to meet like-minded people and discover what is really out there in regards to potential careers and my future,” Brittany said.
The National Youth Science Forum is run in conjunction with Rotary clubs around Australia.
The Rotary Club of South Perth Burswood selected Brittany to attend the 2016 forum.
