MORGAN Campbell, a year 11 student from Lilydale Heights College is pictured on her return from a 12 day National Youth Science Forum held in Perth.
Recently sponsored on the trip by Croydon Rotary Club and her mum and dad Morgan was one of 20 students selected across Victoria to attend the prestigious event with the choice of attending a Forum in Perth or Canberra.
The NYSF gave her the opportunity to see other parts of the scientific field which are not normally available within the school setting. These included Environmental Sciences, biological sciences, forensics medicine and much more.
Nominated for the scolarship by her physics teacher Ms Barr, she had to attend interviews with Croydon Rotary Club and representatives of the NYSF to assess her suitability for the award.
Her days in Perth consisted of University visits, lectures, tours, seminars which made the experience go quickly but made it more memorable..
She says “ To me the NYSF was more than a science camp, more than an experience of a lifetime. It was something that connot be described in words but can only be felt. It has helped me to decide on a future career and where I want to attend university. More importantly it has given me a new found pride and confidence that I never knew I had”.
Well done Morgan!
