As with the previous year, both children and tutors/organisers had lots of fun (and not only at the lunchtime soccer match!)
The 1999 VJSC
The 1999 camp was a great success. There were a reduced number of students (less than the usual 100) due to the camp dates coinciding with Mother's Day, but those who did turn up had a great weekend. The activities included constructing flying origami, creating stained glass ornaments, and a spectacular magic show with the underlying physics explained.
We were included in National Science Week, and on the second day the extraordinary Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki came along and stayed to present the awards.
