More than 100 WA high school students visited Curtin University of Technology recently to experience the wonders of science.
Curtin Science Outreach Coordinator, Emma Donnelly, said students were given the chance to experience a range of science activities in areas such as nanotechnology, pharmacy and spatial sciences.
“The goal of the three-day program was to introduce the students to some of the wonders of science,” she said.
While there, the students were also told about the many science courses offered by Curtin and the career opportunities that exist for science graduates.
Armadale Senior High School student Kirsty Smith said she was considering studying science at university.
“The three days were really fun and I’m glad that I participated,” she said.
Kirsty said she found pharmacy and biology the most interesting subjects she experienced at Curtin.
“After this week, I might choose one of these subjects to study once I finish high school,” she said.
