The chosen winner will represent the UK at the 61st London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF). LIYSF is a two week residential event held at Imperial College London, with lectures and demonstrations from leading scientists, visits to industrial sites, research centres, scientific institutions and organisations, including world class laboratories and universities. The winning student will receive a fully funded place, which includes the full 15 day residential programme, with main lectures from top scientists, specialist lectures across a raft of STEM fields and visits out across the UK to University Departments and Science Institutions. All meals and accommodation provided. LIYSF attracts 500 of the world's leading young scientists aged 16-21 years old from more than 70 participating countries. There is an active social calendar with events designed to enable those from around the world to learn about different cultures. The scope of LIYSF extends further than broadening scientific understanding to engage students in education on other cultures and develop lasting, international friendships. Founded in 1959, LIYSF aims to give a deeper insight into science and its applications for the benefit of all mankind and to develop a greater understanding between young people of all nations: www.liysf.org.uk
