Year 12 Science student Gurbani Rajpal is set to travel to London, joining 500 other students from around the globe at this year’s London International Youth Science Forum.

Earlier this year Gurbani was selected by the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) to attend the London International Youth Science Forum which will be held at the Imperial College, London later this year. Her selection followed from her attendance at the NYSF 2019 Year 12 Program. The NYSF aims to encourage young people to continue studying science related subjects in university and to build careers in the various science, technology and engineering fields and has been operating for more than 30 years. Gurbani was selected to attend the NYSF by the Rotary Club of Wodonga West.

Each year, the NYSF facilitates participation in a number of similar International Programs for young Australians in Year 12. In 2019, over 500 NYSF students will be attending one of these opportunities during the year.

Gurbani is seeking support for fundraising to participate in the London International Youth Science Forum and to attend the CERN Discovery Program. Her fundraising goal is $7,100.
Gurbani is excited to learn more about the field of science and its application to our society and how she can contribute to the domain, looking forward to meeting other young people with a passion for science, having an opportunity to discuss topics that will have an impact on their future.

“As the most educated generation that has ever existed, so it is exactly our duty to take care of the planet that we’re on” said Gurbani.

Gurbani has received a great deal of support from her teachers, receiving overwhelming references from her teachers when applying for this year’s conference.
This isn’t the first experience that she has had with events like this, attending a science conference in Canberra earlier this year which has created many opportunities for Gurbani, including an an invitation to attend the National Youth Science Forum in London.

Gurbani aims to follow her passion for science after graduating from the College by continuing her education at University with an aim to pursue a career in Physics.
