Gold Coast Science Student One of the World's Best
Queensland Academy for Health Sciences Year 12 student Angie Zhou has competed against the world’s best students at the 2020 International Science Olympiad. Angie represented Australia as a member of our national team and is the first Queensland student to have been chosen in seven years.
Students selected for the Olympiad teams are recognised as some of the brightest young scientists in the world and Angie is no exception. She outperformed 1,800 other biology students from 295 schools in the qualifying exams and made the shortlist of 24 students to participate in the demanding Olympiads Summer School program, where she placed as one of Australia’s top four students.
Students Turn to Science For Solutions
Students from the Queensland Academy of Health Sciences (QAHS) on the Gold Coast have developed a series of scientific concepts focussed on marine biodiversity, pitching their ideas to an esteemed panel including Dr Alan Finkel, Australia’s Chief Scientist, along with scientists from Griffith University and Nigeria’s Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
One of the project teams looked at more efficient processes of desalination, a pertinent issue locally with the Gold Coast's desalination plant. Sarah Rao, one of the students working on that project says: “If we could create a more efficient means of purification and implement it here successfully we could then export the concept to other parts of the world.”
Investing in local talent creates business success
From humble beginnings in 2005, Cooper and Westwood has grown rapidly to become one of the Gold Coast’s leading creative agencies with a substantial roster of local, national and international clients. According to General Manager Liam O’Doherty the agency’s success is built on a thriving team culture. “For us, culture is everything. We hire first on culture and aptitude, before technical talent”, O’Doherty enthuses.
It’s that focus on putting people first, with a priority on hiring people with the right cultural fit that has seen the agency develop a substantial internship program to ensure the agency can continue to grow while investing in local talent. “Apart from investing back into our industry the program makes smart business sense. It’s a definite benefit for us having the chance to work with someone, see how they respond to challenges and then how they solve problems to provide a very clear picture of their capability”, says O’Doherty.
