Science has kids bouncing
WHO said science was boring? Definately not Bundaberg's own scientist Ruben Meerman.
Known as the Surfing Scientist Mr Meerman has spent the last week visiting a number of schools across the region.
Mr Meerman said he enjoyed the school visits and he would bounce off the walls more than the students.
"I really enjoy it, the demos change over time and this year the science shows have worked out well as it's the international year of light," he said.
"And amazing enough book weeks theme was Light up our world so it's all tired in well."
The former Kepnock High student said he enjoyed coming back to his home town and it was great seeing the children engaged.
"I talk to the local kids and tell them they can become anything," Mr Meerman said.
"I went off to university and my first job was creating lasers 20 or so years ago."
Mr Meerman said he was currently in the process of writing his first book which was an extension of the work he did in the British Medical Journal.
