Earlier this year, we sent 15 engineering students to Jilin University in China as part of the New Colombo Plan Mobility Program. One student, Johnny, recounts his time there:
"The trip consisted of language classes, cultural exposure and assisting Jilin University’s Gspeed Formula Student Team. We separated into groups depending on which component of the race car we wanted to work on. We observed the construction of the race car and got hands-on by cutting, measuring and even welding some components of the frame.
"I personally worked with the suspension team and was able to contribute to the building of the car as I worked alongside them. We encountered a few problems along the way but had the chance to communicate with each other and figure out ways to overcome them as well. Being able to see how the Gspeed team functions as a team collectively and the partnerships that go on to allow funding of such a project was a good way to learn and an overall enjoyable experience."

Professor Ralph Martins from the Department of Biomedical Sciences has teamed up with Australian cook, author, restaurateur and gourmet food producer Maggie Beer, to write a cook book with recipes that boost brain health- 'Recipes For Life'.
Professor Martins said ‘lifestyle’ diseases such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease increase our chances of developing brain damage in the future. But he said a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, dairy foods, healthy fats and whole grains can help fight cognitive decline. Recipes For Life contains more than 200 recipes that help provide the nutrients we need for optimum brain health.
The proceeds from Recipes For Life will be shared between the Maggie Beer Foundation and the Lions Alzheimer's Foundation
Living with type 2 diabetes plus another chronic health condition? Does your health affect your daily routine? If that's a yes, we would like to invite you to participate in an observational study of the ‘patient work’ involved in type 2 diabetes and other conditions using a range of data collection methods. All participants will receive a $60 shopping voucher for their assistance. http://macq.it/2fIKnvt
