LIYSF 2015: Getting Ready for LIYSF!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the LIYSF 2015 Blog!

I’ll start off with a brief introduction. My name is Kevin, I’m 21 years old and just completed my third year of Chemistry at the University of the Fraser Valley this past winter. I am also extremely excited to be heading into my first year of the UBC medical program in the Fall! I absolutely love learning and have a passion for science and understanding how this incredible world works!

If you are wondering what LIYSF is, the London International Youth Science Forum is a gathering of hundreds of youths (ages 16-21) from all over the world to attend lectures from leading scientists, meet with fellow young scientists from across the globe, tour scientific establishments, and so much more! It’s going to be a phenomenal experience, chalk full of people, places, and science.  If you would like more info, visit

I am very excited to have been selected by UFV to represent our university, as well as our country at this magnificent event! I leave for London, UK on the 21st and will be posting regularly here during my trip so stick around for updates. You can also follow my twitter account @KevinKobes as I attempt to microblog throughout my time there!
