AFTER a 12-day visit to Canberra for the National Youth Science Forum, Karalee student Lauren Booth knows for certain that she wants a career in science.

Studying at the ANU (Australian National University) is also an attractive prospect for the Year 12 Ipswich Girls' Grammar School student. "It was the most amazing experience," Lauren said. "I was in the chemistry group. I've always done well at science and I've enjoyed it.

"I had a really good chemistry teacher and she inspired me."

The forum ran from January 7 to 19, with laboratory tours, experiments, talks and social activities.

Sixteen-year-old Lauren said she enjoyed meeting like-minded students and adding to her network of friends in Australia and overseas.

She'll soon give a presentation about the forum to her sponsor, the Rotary Club of Ipswich North.

Attending the forum will give Lauren a chance to go on follow-up visits to universities and to apply for an international program.
