The half way mark – Session A NYSF 2015

It’s Friday already – half way point of Session A NYSF 2015.

Thursday was another full day, with lab visits beginning in earnest.  Thanks to all of our partners and providers – your generosity in sharing knowledge, expertise and resources makes a real difference to the experience that the NYSF students have in visiting labs and sites to learn more about STEM study and careers. Among the visits in this first week were the ANU’s Physics Education Centre and the Research School of Physics, Canberra Institute of Technology’s Forensics Labs, the National Arboretum, the Canberra Railway Museum and Canberra Deep Space Communications Centre.

The Rotary Dinners this year are providing an opportunity for local Rotoract clubs to present to the NYSF students about their activities, and the opportunities available to them if they join.

Friday morning was all about beyond Year 12 and thinking outside of the square, encouraging students to consider a range of opportunities once high school has finished.

Friday afternoon saw more lab visits, and a trip to a local shopping mall in preparation for the social activities over the weekend, before a well earned rest during home hosting on Sunday.

What will next week bring?
