On 17th October I participated in the D9800 Orientation program for the 60 Year 11 students who were selected to participate in this program in January next year. Due to Covid 19 students will not go to Canberra next year, but will have a combination of top scientists addressing them online. As well as a number of visits to top science precincts such as the Cyclotron and the laboratories at the Burnett Institute and Peter McCallum. The NYSF program is of major benefit to students studying in the STEM areas of Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics. (obviously I am somewhat biased in my support of this program!). The student that our Club is sponsoring, Jerry Ji from Camberwell Grammar, is really looking forward to the opportunity that Glenferrie Rotary has provided.
