In our first year of involvement in the University of Queensland Science Ambassador program, a record twelve students were accepted from Ormiston College. These students were awarded with their badges on assembly on Friday 4 May.
The University of QLD Science Ambassador program was introduced in 2001 to ensure a high level of awareness of science activities among secondary students. UQ Science Ambassadors are high achieving Year 11 students nominated by their schools for demonstrating a strong interest in science and possessing good communication and leadership skills. In their role, ambassadors aim to raise the profile of science in their school by bringing science events, activities, opportunities and issues to the attention of fellow students.
Our ambassadors are already working with Middle School students on exploring educational aspects of MineCraft and a gaming competition; and they are also assisting with the Year 3 STEM Club.
We congratulate the following students on their selection to the program: Bianca Allen, Daniella Cianciola, Isabel Davis, Nikhil Kaniyur, Spiro Livanes, Sophia McQueen, Jakob Mortensen, Alexandra Neate, Madeline Ross, Kristina Van Schie, Joshua Venables and Alexzandria Wilson.
Acting Head of Science
