Each year, The Rotary Club of Ascot puts forward the name of at least one outstanding student with a passion for science to participate in a 12 day NYSF residential program designed to give attendees a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  This year, Esther Nixon of Ursula Frayne Catholic College attended the first program run in Brisbane and returned to tell us about her experiences which she said were life changing.  The program included site visits, lectures, workshops, group activities and social events as well as sessions on entrepreneurship, critical thinking, working effectively with others and much more and helps develop well-rounded individuals who have the skills and confidence to determine their futures.  Esther wants to become a Doctor and we wish her great success for her future.
