“The forum had a huge impact on me, it was a great opportunity to deepen my knowledge in various disciplines of science and learn how it can be applied to solve problems and make life better. I would highly recommend other African young scientists to attend LIYSF to gain new insight into many different areas of science, technology and engineering, making a huge difference to our continent.”
