Speaking to Year 9 students from Newman College this month, Professor Beazley said there were endless career opportunities for young students interested in science.

�With world population growth taking off, science and technology will help us in all of the key areas for us to live, including agriculture, energy, environmental protection and human health,� Professor Beazley said.

�I�m passionate about sharing my enthusiasm for science and showing people how it fits into society, into industry, government and community.

�WA is a great place to study science.�

Newman College head of science Brad Young said the students absorbed everything Professor Beazley said.

�Students were well informed and entertained by the lucid examples of scientific endeavour currently taking place in WA and beyond,� Mr Young said.

�The curriculum offers a wide range of courses that promote both the traditional sciences, as well as some such as psychology that are relatively new to WA and have genuine appeal for students.�
