Queen’s Park student visits one of the world’s top science universities
Teenager studies with top boffins in Israel
A talented sixth-former from Queen’s Park has just returned from a summer camp in Israel experiencing life at one of the world’s top science universities and studying under world class scientists. Oscar Higgott, 17, from Windermere Avenue, was selected from hundreds of students to attend a three week camp at Technion, Israel’s oldest and most prestigious science and technology university.
The experience gave eight Brits and 36 students from the rest of the world the chance to use the university’s state of the art facilities and work with researchers at the top of their field.
Oscar helped build a meter to measure laser beam quality and presented his findings to the other participants at the end of the programme.
Students were also able to experience university life, visit the Dead Sea and ride camels in the desert.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the project I worked on at the Technion and learning from world class scientists.”
