TIME FOR YOUNG EINSTEINS
DANISH Khan is just 15 but he has his eye on a future in science.
The Townsville Grammar School student spent part of his school holidays at the Queensland Junior Physics Olympiad in Brisbane.
Danish was one of 48 Year 10 students chosen to attend the five- day program at the University of Queensland. Students took part in forums, workshops, experiments and interactive discussions with tutors.
“They were pretty much teaching us firstyear physics,” he said. “It was better than just staying at home playing Xbox and sleeping. I got to study, meet some friends and do some different things.
“The whole experience, not only was it fun but it was challenging, which made it more fun.”
Danish is interested in nanotechnology and robotics but said he wasn’t quite sure what the future would hold apart from studying physics in senior school. “Currently, I’m hoping to do engineering,” he said.
