The past and the present come together at the top of The Shard in London. FDMC's most celebrated scientist Dr Michael Kelly was good enough to show current Y13 student Thomas Hadley some of the sights on his recent trip to London. Thomas was attending the International Youth Science Forum as a representative of the Royal Society of New Zealand. His three week trip involved a range of lectures, forums and visits to scientific sites in London, Paris and Geneva. Good to see the FDMC scientific tradition represented in such a graphic way, not forgetting all those scientists who have distinguished themselves in the time between Michael and Thomas.
