The prize money was used to organize a science camp in April this year in Wiltshire, UK, to inspire secondary school students in Year 8.H at 10H General conducting scientific research.

At least 46 students at London High School, most of them girls in difficult circumstances or from minority communities, attended the camp.

This event gave students the opportunity to not only immerse themselves in science, but also to develop their independence and confidence by working with students of different levels and from diverse backgrounds.

The science camp provided the students with a place to carry out interesting and practical science experiments in the field of advanced nanotechnology under the direct guidance of Professor Nguyen Thi Kim Thanh and her colleagues. The work involved using nanotechnology to detect and treat diseases such as cancer.

Professor Nguyen Thi Kim Thanh expressed her happiness with organizing the camp, saying that she will continue to organize extracurricular activities for students at UCL.

She said that cooperation with high schools will be expanded to increase the number of students studying biology, chemistry and physics at A (advanced) level by 50% by 2025-2026.

She said the science camp is part of efforts to further enhance STEM education and inspire the next generation of scientists.
