CYPRUS: Students to present scientific projects at first sCYence Fair

The Cyprus Institute is organising the first sCYence FAIR 2019, which aims to stimulate scientific interest, encourage participation by young students and support the next generation of scientists.

Head of the Events Office of the Cyprus Institute, Charis Hephaestou told CNA the fair will take place on 15-16 March and is under the auspices of the Minister of Education.

The event will be hosted at The Cyprus Institute’s facilities in Nicosia, and is open to all school science groups, ages 9 -18 from both the private and public sectors.

At least 24 schools and 36 science groups will demonstrate their projects to the public and will get a chance to tour the Institute’s facilities, attend related lectures, and enter a contest for the best presentation.

The public will also have the opportunity to get acquainted with three major areas of research on Energy, Environment and Water Resources, Archaeology and Computational Science.

The event provides an opportunity for our young scientists to increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge, and broaden their scientific horizons, Hephaestou said.
