NUS High School does a hat trick at clinching Most Outstanding JC Science Student Award
Chua Lynn is selected as the winner of the WSPC-ICAAS Most Outstanding JC Science Student Award 2010 & Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar (SIYSS) Representative Selection. This is the third consecutive year that a student from NUS High School receives such an honour.
This award is jointly presented by World Scientific Publishing Company (WSPC), which sponsors the cost of sending the winning student to the SIYSS each year, and the Imperial College Alumni Association of Singapore (ICAAS).
The SIYSS 2010 will be held 4-11 December 2010 in Stockholm. The SIYSS is an annual weeklong event for young international scientists, arranged in connection with the Nobel festivities by the SIYSS Committee of the Swedish Federation of Young Scientist in collaboration with the Nobel Foundation. The program of the week comprises of scientific activities and lectures as well as unique occasions to meet the Nobel Laureates. Furthermore, the students are introduced to Swedish science and research as well as Swedish culture and customs. However, the main event of the week is a big seminar where the participants present their research to each other and to Swedish students. The week culminates with the Nobel festivities where the SIYSS participants attends both the Nobel Reception at Nordiska Museet and the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall, followed by the Nobel Banquet at the Stockholm City Hall as well as the Nobel Night Cap, the final festivity after the banquet. With its connection to the Nobel Prizes, SIYSS is widely considered the most prestigious youth science event in the world. Former participants often witness about how the program has inspired them to continue doing research and that the week in Stockholm was a truly unique experience.
