Call for schools to take part in science fair

Exhibition aims to stimulate children's interest in science

Registrations have started for participation in the pioneering science fair ‘sCYence Fair 2019’, organised by the Cyprus Institute (CI), which will take place on March 15 and 16.
Pupils from primary and secondary schools can apply free of charge. Depending on the level of participation, more than one science group can participate from the same school.
The Cyprus Institute will arrange free transport for pupils from cities other than Nicosia.
The exhibition aims to stimulate scientific interest and to encourage participation by young students and support the next generation of scientists from Cyprus. 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. Students will get the chance to demonstrate their scientific projects to the public, and will get a chance to tour The Cyprus Institute’s facilities, attend related lectures, and enter a contest for the best presentation.
School bands are welcomed to participate as long as they are approved by the responsible committee, and food and music will be available during the fair. The full programme and updates for the fair will be announced at a later stage.
The science festival is under the auspices of the education minister and is supported by the municipality of Aglandjia.
Interested schools can apply until February 20, either online https://scyence.cyi.ac.cy/online-registration or complete the application form and send it by e-mail or fax.
Entrance to the event is free. For more information: Tel: 22-208702, Fax: 22-208625 Email: [email protected], website: https://scyence.cyi.ac.cy/
