Science and young minds

Youth engagement in skin health

The QIMR Berghofer's Science and young minds project aimed to inspire the scientists and medical professionals of tomorrow. The research team relayed the importance of medical research and health related professions to senior high school students in remote areas of north-west Queensland, targeting engagement of students with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. The project included the development and delivery of science workshops to high schools in remote north-west Queensland in 2014 and 2015 with selected student and teacher participation in a laboratory work experience program at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane.
