NYSF Australia 2012 - Busy at the Forum

Fri, 2012-01-06 13:50 -- Jessie MacAlpine

We have been so busy over the last five days there has been absolutely no time for a blog entry!

We are currently at the forum, learning and interacting with other young and passionate students. Moriah, Shaun and I are not staying on the same floor and with the sheer number of students here we haven't been able to see each other much!

We have done some really interesting lab visits, visited Parliament House (and participated in a mock senate debate), played cricket, experienced a fun bush dance (similar to line dancing) and learned about Australian universities.

Tonight we are buying our costumes for the science disco tomorrow night! More updates to come, goodbye for now!

Canada is represented at the 2012 Australian National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) by three students selected at the 2011 Canada-Wide Science Fair: Jessie MacAlpine of Woodstock, ON, Moriah Harvey of Nipigon, ON, and Shaun MacDonald of Tulita, NT.
