Outstanding senior STEM student — Amy Zhou

Very excited to congratulate one of our Queensland Academies Health Sciences campus students, Amy Zhou, who was a recent recipient of the 2016 Peter Doherty Awards for Excellence in STEM Education — Outstanding Senior STEM Student Award.

Amy was one of only nine Australian students chosen to go to India for the 10th Asian Science Camp. While at this camp, Amy made an appearance on ABC Gold Coast Radio where she advocated and encouraged girls to study STEM subjects in secondary school. Listen to her interview here.
