The Science Experience
The Rotary Club sponsored four students to "The Science Experience" The experience is a three day visit to a local University. Young scientists who love their work allow students into their laboratories for 'hands on' experience in many areas of science and engineering.
Two of those students attended our meeting on 12th February to thank the club.

Thomas' father Seraphin was delighted that Rotary had provided an opportunity for his son to attend 'The Science Experience'. "You dont know how much affect you Rotarians have when you do something like this",he told the members." It will make not only a difference to Thomas, but to his brothers and sisters, his family, our friends, and in fact the whole community. I come from a country where only the Chief Ministers sons have the opportunity to go to University, yet here am I now completing a degree in Social Work and my family has that opportunity too. I thank you Rotary, from all the community."
