Local Schools Engage in Science Week 2010

High school science students had the opportunity to participate in DNA extractions, lung capacity measurements and V02 max tests with Bond’s Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine during Science Week in May.

“Science Week is a valuable opportunity for high school students to immerse themselves in a higher level of science, gain exposure to the Faculty’s state-of-the-art facilities and participate in practical activities they would not normally be able to undertake at their own schools,” said Faculty Dean, Professor Richard Hays.

The third year of this annual event was the biggest so far, attracting 235 students in grades 10 to 12 from seven local school, including:

  • A.B. Paterson College
  • Benowa State High School
  • Emmanuel College
  • Keebra Park State High School
  • Palm Beach Currumbin State High School
  • Rivermount College
  • Queensland Academy for Health Sciences

“The feedback from the 2010 event has been outstanding, with many students indicating they are now interested in pursuing a career in the sports or science industries,” said Professor Hays.

“For many of the attending students, this was their first experience at Bond University.

“We look forward to developing fruitful relationships with each of these schools and for the Faculty to becoming a bigger presence in the community.”
