International Student Science Conference
On 2 July 2017, Claire Shi (Year 10), Eleanor Clifton-Bligh (Year 10), Madeleine Maloof (Year 12) and Mrs Natalie Gore travelled to Hong Kong for the 2017 International Student Science Conference.
For six exciting days, we were hosted by St Paul's Co-educational College (SPCC). We took part in many activities including a molecular gastronomy workshop, a visit to Cyberport Technology Hub, a tour of Hong Kong’s many suspension bridges and a visit to the Museum of History and the Museum of Science. We also had the chance to explore the city and visited Victoria Harbour, Causeway Bay as well as Hong Kong’s famous Ocean Park, where we saw a Giant Panda.
Over the course of the week, we met wonderful people from all corners of the world, including Hong Kong, China, India, Italy, Tasmania and Kazakhstan. The presentation of the student science projects was fascinating because they were all relevant to real world issues. Congratulations to Claire Shi who placed second in the presentations.
Thank you to the students and staff of SPCC who were so kind and generous in their hospitality. Thank you to Mrs Gore for accompanying us on this trip. Thank you to Dr Burgis for this incredibly rewarding and enriching experience.
