On 25th July 2014, the London International Youth Science Forum held the Student Poster Board Evening at the Science Forum Bazaar. In the Bazaar, students chose to present their research projects that they completed prior to coming to LIYSF. It was an outstanding opportunity for them to showcase their new and exciting ideas to the rest of the participants.
The atmosphere in the Imperial College Atrium and Mechanical Engineering Foyer was electric! It was just as expected when over 400 like-minded individuals gather around together to talk about something they were all really passionate about. There were participants from all around the world presenting their projects, and every single one of them spent as much time as they could putting up their posters, making their stands look as attractive as possible. The rest of the students were also very enthusiastic to hear about their friends’ work.

This was on completion of my first year at University. It was a great opportunity to learn about many aspects of science and to meet so many young people from all over the world with similar interests. The chance to visit London was a very excit...
