This is a great honour and Alex will join the “Experienced Group” in a leadership role in January.
This group do advanced courses with the lecturers in the evenings and run clubs, game and tutor groups with the new attendees. They also help the director with day trips and excursions.
The Mathematics Department at NASHS wish Alex all the best at the NMSS and in his future endeavours in which we are certain Mathematics will figure prominently.
Mackenzie will be one of 64 female secondary students coming together for an exciting program of learning in Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Evnironmental science, Engineering, Informatics, Mathematics and Physics.
There will be talks from prominent women in STEM, lab work and excursions. The first summer residental camp is at the Australian National University in Canberra in December and is then followed up by a six month coaching program connecting with a successful waman in science, technology, engineering or mathematics who will work with Mackenzie to learn more about study and careers in STEM.
There is another residential camp in July which is based at the Australian Institute of Sport in the ACT.
This is an amazing opportunity and we wish Mackenzie all the best on this prestigious program.
