A local student will gain a new insight into science after recently being nominated to attend a national science forum next year.
Brisbane Water Secondary College student and Rotary Club of Umina Beach member, Dominic ‘Dom’ Hall, will attend Rotary’s 2022 National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) in January.
The 12-day forum aims to attract ‘outstanding’ STEM students from throughout Australia.
Publicity officer for the Rotary Club of Umina Beach, Pat Lewis, said the opportunity will be a ‘great step’ for Dom towards his career goal of becoming an engineer.
“We all join in congratulating Dom,” Lewis said.
“Participants will experience everything the NYSF is famous for, including keynote speakers, lectures, hands-on workshops, debates, expos and enriching social activities.
“In-person STEM visit days and events will be held over a week of the program at major city hubs across the country, enabling students to meet each other and network with like-minded peers.”
Students will be able to participate in tours of science and technology facilities, learn about cutting-edge research, engage with industry partners, learn about STEM career pathways, and network with former NYSF participants.
The forum will run from January 10 to January 25 via a combination of in-person and digital STEM experiences.
