Young Scientists Journal Conference 2016

We had a fantastic time hosting the Young Scientists Journal Conference yesterday, so we put together the tweets from the day as an album. Press play to flick through the tweets or follow the storify link to see the full story.

 

The Young Scientists Journal is written and edited exclusively by 12-20 year olds, and in 2016 reached its tenth anniversary year. It publishes peer reviewed research papers and articles on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in print and online.

The third annual conference at St Anne’s College brought together students, science teachers scientists and academics for an exciting day of talks, workshops, discussions and sharing of ideas. Students also had the opportunity to take part in a poster competition to showcase their own research projects.

The Constructing Scientific Communities project was represented by Professor Sally Shuttleworth at the first welcome session, and Professor Chris Lintott gave one of the keynote talks on The Universe Through A Million Eyes. Grant Miller from Zooniverse ran one of the day’s workshops on the subject of People-Powered Research.

For full details of the day’s events and photographs of the conference, a report is available on the Young Scientists Journal website.
