The 63rd London International Youth Science Forum took place between 28th July and 10th August 2022. The opening ceremony was attended by Royal Patron HRH The Princess Royal and the keynote address was delivered by Nobel Prize Winner Professor James Rothman. We offered nine scholarships for African students to attend the Forum in person. Of these Olive attended from Kenya, Zwivhuya and Rokunda attended from South Africa and Innocent attended from Tanzania. Due to widespread visa issues Marina and Stephen from Kenya, Sharifa from Tanzania and Tinovimbanashe and Yolanda from Zimbabwe were unable to travel to London, but they did attend the Forum virtually through the online platform. Rokunda had this to say about his experience at this year’s Forum: “I enjoyed every moment of it, made a lot of connections in the fraternity, great friends from different parts of the world and reminded myself of the potential I know I have. I met very influential students, lecturers, professors, and practitioners who opened my eyes to the world of science on a very personal level”.
