issue1715-nysf-main

Congratulations to the seven PLC Sydney students who have been selected for the 2016 National Youth Science Forum (NYSF), to be held at the Australian National University in Canberra early next year.

 

Jasmine Atkins, Emma Carnuccio, Esther Kang, Pippa Lam, Lauren Sharpe, Amanda Sieber and Katie Taylor will attend the 12-day program, which is designed for students moving into Year 12 who are considering a career in Science, Engineering and Technology.

 

The National Youth Science Forum is a most prestigious event. Applicants must provide evidence of academic success, gain sponsorship from their local Rotary Club, and face a rigorous selection panel at the University of NSW.

 

The Forum introduces students to research and researchers, encourages the achievement of excellence and assists in the development of communication and interpersonal skills and establishes the opportunity for lifelong networks within the scientific community. It also fosters discussion of, and interest in, major national and global issues and emphasises the importance of maintaining continuing active interests in sport, arts and music.

PLC Sydney has been well-represented at the National Youth Science Forum in previous years. Six students attended in 2015 (seven were selected), four in 2014 and four in 2013.

We wish the girls all the best when they take part in this significant and worthwhile opportunity.
