Budding scientists visit the Joondalup Campus Library

Last Monday afternoon a group of twenty young science students visited the ECU Joondalup Campus Library as part of their Year 10 academic enhancement program. The students were from Irene McCormack College, Mater Dei College, Prendiville College and Sacred Heart College. Greg Bates the Campus Librarian introduced them to our library before they had a brief tour of the library building.

Dr Christine Ormond, Lecturer in Mathematics Education wanted the students to get a feel for the university study environment available in the new purpose built library. Students accessed our library catalogue, searched for material and used the library study spaces to research their science projects.

The culmination of the enhancement program will be the presentation of their topic to an audience including ECU academics, their families and friends on the evening of September 15th at ECU.
