Sixth Formers Head to the AAAS Conference, San Diego, California

A group of 12 specially selected SES Science students from years 12 and 13 visited the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science conference, which was held in San Diego. This is a very prestigious convention where world leading scientists from all fields come together to share their latest research findings, and the SES students were both excited and challenged by the subjects of the symposia they attended. Some of the many subjects included “The Science of Superheroes”, “Traumatic Brain Injury”, “New Frontiers in Particle Physics”, “Intelligence of Dolphins: Ethical and Policy Implications”, “The Role of Sleep in Memory”, “Nanotechnology”, and “Are Neutrinos the Reason We Exist?”. The group also enjoyed many cultural activities such as watching San Diego State University men’s basketball team beat Utah State; seeing a Grey whale, two species of Pacific dolphin and Californian sea lions on a whale watching trip and visiting the world famous zoo.
