Young Scientist 2015


Dr Wakerley took some Sixth Form students to King’s School, Canterbury, for the Young Scientists Journal Conference.

We were entertained by Professor Sir Martyn Poliakoff as a keynote speaker and then chose workshops to attend ranging from science and expeditions in space to how King Richard III bones were identified.

Whilst there, Emily Thomson presented a poster on some independent research she had done during Year 13 and was filmed as part of the outreach programme to promote the journal. Emily carried out both of these tasks with great aplomb and confidence. We are hoping that the work will be published in this journal and the prestigious International Journal of Clinical Practice (IJCP).

The Young Scientists Journal is the world’s only peer review science journal run by young scientists for young scientists. The journal publishes research papers and review articles on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) both online and in print, written and edited exclusively by 12-20 year olds across the globe. 17 issues have been published since it was founded in 2006.

The next event is being held in Oxford during October 2016 – so all budding scientists out there, think about what you would present if you attended the conference!
