Jye Dewar was recently chosen to attend the two-week long London Youth Science Forum, one of just 300 students who will attend the event this month after participating in the National Youth Science Forum.

The Year 12 student was sponsored by the Rotary Club of North Perth to attend both events. He is also being mentored by club member Clarry Brown.

Club president Bruno Fic said Jye impressed the Rotary Club selection panel with his passion for engineering and computer science.

‘Jye is a very bright student. He has the passion and drive to succeed so all I can say is we hope he does,’ Mr Fic said.

Mr Fic said the club supported students to attend the national science forum each year to help encourage continued study in the science and mathematics fields.
