sCYence Fair 2021: an impressive comeback online

pr science 300

sCYence Fair 2021, the ground-breaking fair organised by the Cyprus Institute, makes an impressive fully renewed comeback and invites you on an online knowledge journey of the science world.

Student groups from primary and secondary education are asked to prepare 10-minute presentational videos of their innovative ideas and scientific research with the help of technology.

Secondary education participants, students from gymnasiums and lyceums, will be judged by their peers who will vote on social media (50 per cent of the total score) and the CyI panel of judges (50 per cent of the total score) to select the three top presentations in each category.  The three top participations coming from primary education will be selected by the CyI panel of judges.

Winners in all categories will be announced at the grand final which will take place on April 19 and 20 and will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook via the CyI website.

Due to the current exceptional circumstances, both the presentations and the grand final will take place online. Awards will be presented to the three most remarkable and imaginative proposals.

sCYence Fair 2021 is open for all school groups of students between the ages of 9 and 18 without any registration fee.  In addition, each school can participate with more than one scientific group.  Registration forms and videos must be sent to [email protected] by March 30.  For more information, please visit https://scyence.cyi.ac.cy/ .

Within the framework of the sCyence Fair 2021, the Cyprus Institute will also host the 12th Semep Unesco Student Conference of Cyprus on Research Methods in Ecology.

The sCYence Fair 2021 is organised under the auspices of the minister of education, the deputy minister of research, innovation and digital policy, the chief scientist for research and innovation with the support of the Aglantzia municipality.
