One student inspires and challenges others

VRG is so proud of our senior science student, Julia Reinius.  She recently represented our school in the national competition for best young researcher.  Julia won the Gösta Lindners scholarship for Technical Chemistry applications.

This is how she described her experience:

“It was the best week of my life.  It was fantastic to not only meet people as interested in science as I am but also meet some of Sweden’s leading scientists.  Everyone had unbelievable projects.  I participated in fantastic lectures and met fantastic people with whom I will maintain contact with for a long time.  I really encourage all younger VRG students to put a bit of extra energy into their senior project.  And, then apply for this opportunity. / Det var en av de bästa veckorna i mitt liv. Det var fantastiskt att få inte bara möta människor som är lika intresserade av naturvetenskap som jag är men som dessutom är några av Sveriges främsta inom naturvetenskap. Alla hade otroliga projekt som får en att ifrågasätta sin plats där. Har fått se fantastiska föreläsningar och träffat fantastisk människor som jag kommer ha kontakt med resten av mitt liv. Skulle verkligen uppmana alla att lägga lite extra energi på gymnasiearbetet och söka.”

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
