Students and Science: Check out the The ConocoPhillips Science Experience

Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney is encouraging Geraldton students in Years 9 and 10 to consider taking part in the ConocoPhillips Science Experience. Mr Blayney is a sponsor of this program and two students from Geraldton Senior College will participate.

The program encourages students in Years 9 and 10 to consider science, engineering and technology as interesting, worthwhile subjects and careers choices.

The programs are essentially for 3-4 days of hands-on science fun and practical activities in laboratories, short interactive lectures from prominent scientist and most programs include a visit to a local research/industry site. Each program provides information on possible careers and future study opportunities and allows students to become members of the Young Scientists of Australia, if they wish.

The registration fee for the 3 day program is $120 (inc GST) per student and the 4 day program is $160 (inc GST) per student. This program is also supported by Rotary through the Science Schools Foundation (Inc), which is an independent non-profit association of educationalists, Rotarians and industrials. I am really pleased to be able to support this program.
