National Youth Science Forum

On Thursday the 28th of February, 14 Year 12 students came to the ANU Medical School as part of the National Youth Science Forum. The NYSF is a program targeted to students interested in pursuing careers in science and the students were eager to learn about what was involved in studying medicine. The ANU Rural Medical Society ran an afternoon session for the students that involved practical stations including microscopy, anatomy and . We were also privileged to have paramedics from NSW and ACT Ambulance come and involve the students in a practical demonstration of what a job involving a heart attack would require. The afternoon was finished off with a fun (if messy) session of plastering. Thanks to everyone who came along to help run what was a fun and successful afternoon!NYSF
