Over the summer break, I was fortunate enough to participate in a range of professional development opportunities in Graz, Austria and various locations in England. I first participated in 2 roundtable discussions at the University of Graz and met with the Graz Scientific Council. Through contacts that I made at the first roundtable, I was invited to sit in on a third in the Human Rights Institute! I then went to London to meet with the London Science Museum Academy (wow!) whereby what was scheduled to be a sit down session turned into 3 hours of discussions, experiments, demonstrations and short lectures. I then went up to Northampton to meet with 2 professors from the scientific research unit on water at Cranbourne University (world leaders on water research) and finally, all the way down to Plymouth to learn about hydrography and oceanography.
