The Rotary Club of Buderim has a proud history of helping our local students to participate in programs designed to set them on the path to their chosen careers. We are proud to say that we have approved the applications for sponsorship from 10 of our local students to participate in The Science Experience.
Each program is designed to provide students who have an interest in science with an opportunity to engage in a wide range of fascinating science activities under the guidance of scientists who love their work.
The program takes place in universities and tertiary institutions, within many different laboratories and lecture theatres. Participants perform experiments in the laboratories, meet and hear senior lecturers in the lecture theatres, attend site visits and walk around and experience what it is like to be on the campus of a university or tertiary institution.
More than 84,000 students have taken this rare opportunity, up to date.
The program also provides information about further studies in science, technology and engineering. It highlights the wide range of careers that allow students to pursue their interest and abilities in the sciences.
One aspect of the program often commented on by participants is the opportunity to meet and share ideas with students from different schools.
Just another example of Buderim Rotary proudly working to the benefit of our local community.
