STUDENTS travelled as far afield as China to learn about science and technology at Bracknell's International Research Centre, Sygenta.

Around 14 students from nine different countries visited the site in Jeallott's Hill to learn about the application of science, technology, engineering and maths for new agricultural innovations.

The Bracknell research centre hosted the London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) where students have a packed two week programme that includes lectures from experts, and visits to world-leading scientific laboratories, research sites and Universities.

Eager students learned from a variety of scientists who demonstrated the plant science and food production technology innovations that Syngenta supports.

Gary Needham, Syngenta Biologist, said: "The LIYSF visitors come from very diverse academic and social backgrounds but their shared passion for science made it a pleasure to host them.

"It was great to showcase our science, technology and careers and I hope that they are inspired to continue their interest in science.”
