Kiama High’s Adelaide Galovic has been selected to represent Australia at the International Youth Science Forum in Singapore in the July holidays.
The Year 12 student was selected by Shellharbour Rotary Club as their representative at the prestigious National Youth Science in Canberra earlier this year.
The Forum is a unique program that enables outstanding final year students from around the country the opportunity to get a hands-on feel for careers and learn about study options in the diverse fields of science, engineering and technology.
Students live on campus as university students, gain an insider’s perspective on campus life, and experience real science, working with scientists at a range of laboratories and workshops.
The aim is to gain the knowledge, skills and perspectives to enable them to make informed choices about Year 12 studies, university course options – and beyond.
Later in Year 12 they also have the opportunity to attend further short programs at various locations around the country, to build further upon their knowledge and experience and add further perspectives that assist them in their successful transition to University.
Adelaide is now off to represent Australia at an annual science summer camp at the National University of Singapore (NUS) The International Youth Science Forum offers an inspiring series of lectures and laboratory sessions conducted by university professors, to help students to discover their passion and potential in the field of science and technology.
The camp will include visits to NUS’s state-of-the-art research centres for experiential learning in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment.
This program provides an excellent opportunity to interact and network with students from various countries and make new friends in the Asia region, as well as experience tours and excursions to top tourist destinations in Singapore.
