PICSE USQ held a very successful Reporting Back Session on Wednesday 5th February 2014 at the Allison Dickson lecture Theatre. The evening was a celebration of the success of our wonderful students and their achievements in being awarded the PICSE Industry Scholarship. The opening address was made by the Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor of USQ, Prof Janet Verbyla who praised both the students and the PICSE program. The Dean of the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences, Prof Lyn Karstadt presented the students with their certificates. The highlight of the evening was without doubt hearing from the students themselves talking about their experiences, friends they had made and the insights they gained about science and opportunities within the Primary Industries. The Industry Placement Scholarship truly is an amazing opportunity for any students interested in learning more about the opportunities in science. Our next round of PICSE Industry Scholarships begins in May. Please contact Ingrid Gow if you are interested in applying.
