Beijing Bound is open annually to Year 10 and 11 students from Tom Price SHS, Karratha SHS and St Luke’s College, giving them the opportunity to be mentored by a Rio Tinto graduate and create a research project on a topic of their choice..
Beijing Bound provides secondary students in the Pilbara region with an exciting opportunity to combine a passion for science with their knowledge of the region, undertake scientific research and make a real contribution to the Pilbara science community and greater Western Australia.
Under the guidance of a Rio Tinto professional acting as their mentor, students develop a research project, collect data and submit regular progress reports on their project. At the end of this period students prepare a final report, a short oral presentation and informative poster detailing their findings.
