Youth Leading in STEM 2021

During the last week of Term 2, a group of students from Year 9 and 10 travelled to Canberra to participate in Youth Leading in STEM – an educational outreach initiative coordinated by ANU.
Students were selected through an application process, and it speaks to the calibre of the students when all 9 students who applied were selected to attend! The students selected were Riley Fleming, Shafin Salim, Declan Eshman, Laura Williams, Kada Hutt, Emma Robinson, Kira Holmesby, Jack Foster and Claudia Heaney.

The camp is designed to allow students to explore a wide range of STEM fields in a university environment, and has students engaging in hands on experiments in key learning areas such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computing and Engineering. Students also experience on-campus living and dining and learn more about ANU and work with mentors and academics to hone their leadership and presentation skills.

All 9 students from Coonabarabran High School had a fabulous time and were fantastic ambassadors for the school.
