Jemma off to Asia Science Camp

We are thrilled for Jemma Henneveld who has been chosen for the 11th Asia Science Camp in Guangdong, China from 28 July to 3 August. The Royal Society Te Apārangi selects only five students nationally to attend this highly regarded forum. Organised by China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE), the programme will include lectures from Nobel Laureates, science workshops, discussion sessions, excursions and social activities. With the theme Science, Youth and the Future, the goal is to encourage thousands of young people in Asia and across the world to participate in science exploration, to improve the lives of people.
